Park Manager John Roche stands on the Lester Findley barrier-free trail at Oscar Scherer State Park. The trail is one
of many improvements Roche and his staff have made to the park. Roche was appointed manager of Oscar Scherer
State Park on July 9.



New boss has state




park in high gear


Park manager at Oscar
Scherer, John Roche is
halfway through his to-do
list and showing no signs of
slowing down.

BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER

Eight months in office and
already a track record that any elect-
ed official or CEO would kill for.
"I've met 14 out of 27 goals I set
for myself,." Oscar Scherer State Park
Manager lohn Roche said.
Roche, not an elected official,
was appointed manager July 9. He
had been assistant park manager.
Among Roche's goals were to:
renovate some park facilities
make park amenities more
accessible
make trails more bicycle friend-
ly
improve visitors' services
increase programs
make more people aware of the
value of the park
Roche has addressed all of those
areas to one degree or another.
"We are in the process of upgrad-
ing our wastewater treatment facili-
ry and refurbishing campground
restroom facilities," Roche said. "We
also have added more benches on
the Lester Findlay Barrier-Free Trail
and a picnic table that overlooks

South Creek."
Hikers and bikers
Another ongoing park project is
designed around hikers and bikers.
"We are laying out a whole new
trail system to make it easier to fol-
low," Roche said. "Our trails are not
really bike friendly, so we are work-
ing on the trails south of the camp-
ground, smoothing them out ifor
bikes)'."
Roche said this is a busy time.


Like everywhere else, snowbirds
make up a large portion of the win-
ter population at the park.
Roche said in fiscal 2004, 115,000
people visited the park. The park
has 104 campsites, Roach' said, and
reservations are taken 11 months in
advance.
There appears to be little that
Roche has not thought of to make
the park a "must-see" for visitors

A dirty pool and roof viola-

lawsuits finally filed in circuit
court, and there's still no

BYJ J. ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

The value of the home at 562
Marsh Creek Road has increased by
$70,000 since August.
Its dirty pool also has piled up an
additional $20,000 in code violation
fines since then.
Now the city has filed to foreclose
on the home in order to recover more
than $34,000 in fines. Plants and vari-
ous vegetation have been growing in,
the pool for nearly a year, and neigh-
bors are complaining about the smell.
This isn't the only Venice home fac-
ing action in circuit court. City At-
torney Bob Anderson also filed
papers to declare a mobile home at 34
Hatchet Creek Road a threat to pub-
lic safety because only four metal
straps keep the roof from blowing off

Two sentenced for felling eagle's nest


An innocent third-party victim was winged
by some of the shrapnel in that case,
but is now free to develop the property
where the nest once stood.


BY TOMMY MCINTYRE
STAFF WRITER


The judge let'em have it -
so to speak for cutting
down an eagle's nest in Venice
more than two years ago.
Mylon Stockton, 36, of
Noblesville, Ind., and Mark
Borinsky, 39, of North Port,
were ordered to pay a total of
$100,000 for violating the fed-
eral Bald and Golden Eagle
Protection Act.
Meanwhile, Richard Patete,
a retired attorney who suf-
fered collateral damage from
the eagle incident, is now free
to develop the land he bought
from Stockton, who bought it
from Borinsky.

The claims include: fraud
by non-disclosure, unfair and

lation of the Civil Remedies for
Criminal Practices Act, fraud,

"The suit is still pending,"
Staas said Thursday. "We are

Staas said the prosecutor
could have charged Stockton

statutes, but chose not to do it.
"I don't know why they
didn't," he said.

Red tide arrives in South County


BY BOB REDDY
STAFF WRITER

Squid, shrimp, crab and
assorted fish might be ideal
for a seafood buffet, but in-
stead, they were what beach-
goers found washed ashore
Saturday and again Sunday.
The reason: red tide.
The appearance of red tide
came as no surprise to those
who were at the beach; the
algal bloom was spotted off
the Tampa coast several days
ago.
Assorted small fish and
even a sand shark and sea
snakes were reported
washed ashore on Manasota
Beach in north Englewood
on Saturday. More dead fish
were reportedly found there
on Sunday.


"This is just weird," said
Brenda Stockley. "I've never
seen anything like it. I've seen
some pretty weird-looking
fish here today, that's for
sure."
Stockley splits her time
between Minneapolis, Minn.,
and Englewood and has seen
the aftermath of red tide
only once.
"There were a few fish, but
nothing like this," she said. "I
saw a shrimp die in front of
me. The same with a crab and
squid. Very strange. I just
hope it's gone before my
grandchildren arrive next
weekend."
On Saturday, there was'
only a slight hint of the odor
typically associated with red
tide. Sunday the odor got a
little stronger as the wind


direction changed.
According to the Florida
Marine Research Institute,
area outbreaks happen most
often from September
through February, but can
occur any time of the year.
Red, tide produces potent
chemical toxins that conta-
minate shellfish and can
create severe respiratory
irritation in humans. It can
irritate the eyes, nose and
throat. Tingling of the lips
and tongue are also com-
mon symptoms.
During high concentra-
tions of red tide, wind, waves
and boat propellers disperse
toxin particles into the air.
People who are sensitive
and experience coughing and
sneezing or are uncomfort-
able should stay indoors.


Anyone with chronic resp-
iratory conditions should
avoid red tide areas.
Symptoms usually disap-
pear within hours of expo-
sure.
Weather changes make it
nearly impossible to predict
where red tide might affect-
people or how long it could
'last.
When concentrations are
high, it creates a brownish-
red sheen on the water sur-
face and has been known
to cover several-hundred
square miles. The occur-
rence of red tide cannot be
predicted, as it is affected by
many variables such as
weather and currents.

Parks planning yields



some surprises


Envision Venice wraps u
the environment and be
ions of residents.

BYJJ.ANDREWS
NEWS EDITOR

More than 110 people
showed up this week to talk
about Venice's parks, natural
habitats and recreational
areas and how to handle nat-
ural disasters.
No one brought up the is-
sue of preserving and protect-
ing the waterways, shoreline
and fishing habitat except for
several fishermen and charter
boat captains who showed up

UPCOMING SESSIONS


p community input on
gins organizing the opin-


to Wednesday's Envision Ven-
ice meeting.
Not even the city's compre-
hensive planners and orga-
nizers of the community ses-
sions thought to specifically
ask about the water, said
Kathie Ebaugh, who's leading
the Envision Venice process.
All of the questions are about
the city's parks, and all those
in attendance were talking
about "land parks."
It was up to a handful of
boaters to ask what the future


* Thursday was the final of three community brainstorming ses-
sions about Venice's environment, parks, recreation and conserva-
tion issues. Citizens will selected their recreation and environmen-
tal priorities at the next meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 24 at the
Salvation Army, 1051 Albee Farm Road.
* Envision Venice is the process by which city planners establish
What citizens what the future of Venice to look like. This informa-
tion will form the state-mandated comprehensive future land use
plan, due in 2006.

public infrastructure, like roads and utilities. Go online to venice-
gov.com and click on the Envision Venice link for more details.


plans are for the water areas
- an important question
when much of the city is an
island.
"It was the first time that
issue had really come to the
front," Ebaugh said, "and it
never would've come to the
front (of discussions) if they
hadn't participated, and that's
why it's so important ...
because only the community
sees the community the way
they see it."
Comments ran the spec-
trum from telling city plan-
ners protection of the envi-
ronment has been great to
saying it's been terrible. As for
how to improve that protec-
tion, suggestions went from
more recycling to shifting the
population offVenice island.
The biggest threats to Ven-
ice's natural resources, ac-
cording to those at Tuesday's
community meeting, were
various forms of develop-
ment. Water issues and natur-
al disasters were next.
Coming into these ses-
sions, many of the planners
had the belief the best hurri-
cane protection is adequate
local shelters rather than
evacuation to the mainland.
When asked for their opin-

members of the public who attended the meeting Tuesday to discuss issues including open
spaces and natural disaster preparedness.


ions, participants all agreed
it's better to stay home than
get stuck on Interstate 75 with
an approaching hurricane.
Venice will go from having
no hurricane-approved shel-
ters within city limits in 2004
to three by the end of 2005, if
construction of the new Ven-
ice Elementary School, Venice
Community Center and the
clubhouse at Venetian Golf &
River Club all are completed


on time.
"We believe, as profession-
al planners, it's better to pro-
vide shelter here locally (dur-
ing hurricanes)," Ebaugh
said. "We weren't sure if the
community thought that.
Everyone in the community
agreed ... and it reaffirmed to
us what we already thought."
Thursday was the final of
the brainstorming sessions
about environment, parks,


recreation and conservation
issues. Citizens will select
their priorities at the next
meeting, from 6 to 8 p.m. Feb.
24, at the Salvation Army,

The pristine land is ideal habitat for numerous
Florida species, including scrub jays,
gopher tortoises and eastern indigo snakes.


BYWARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

It was similar to the joy of
putting the last piece of a dif-
ficult puzzle in place.
This week, Sarasota County
commissioners unanimously
approved the purchase of a
503-acre parcel along Deer
Prairie Creek for $9.3 million
from Jordyn Holdings VI.
Following the purchase of
the nearby 420-acre Churchill
Ranch on Dec. 30, Tuesday's
action will bring the entire
Deer Prairie Creek area into
public protection.
Deer Prairie Creek is a
tributary on the east side of
Myakka River, and the prop-
erty lying along the creek is
slated as one of the county's
priority protection sites. The
property lies east of the River
Road and Interstate 75 inter-
change and is bounded by
the Carlton Reserve on the
north, North Port on the east,
Interstate 75 to the south, and
another portion of the Schewe
Ranch to the
west.
The county
had targeted
the property as-' s .
for protection '.
because of the '1-
pristine pine '
flatwoods,
hammock,
depression Mills
marshes, dry
prairie and scrub habitats
present. .
The nature of the property
makes it ideal habitat for
Florida scrub jays, gopher
tortoises, eastern indigo
snakes, sandhill cranes, wood
storks and other wading birds.
Not a done deal
Of equal importance to
the county in acquiring the
property, besides the natural
benefits, is the link between
the Schewe Ranch (owned by
the Southwest Florida Water
Management District) to the


south and the Carlton Reserve
to the north.
Eric Sutton, general man-
ager of the county's Natural
Resources Department, said it
was possible the water man-
agement district, commonly
known as Swiftmud, would
participate in the purchase
after the fact, contributing a
possible $8 million in reim-
bursement to the county.
"Participation after the fact
is routine," Sutton said. "We
have good communications
with Swiftmud and we've
gotten encouraging words
from them."
The escalating land costs
to purchase environmentally
sensitive land concerned
commissioner David Mills.
"These escalating/ land
costs are using up all our
money," Mills
said. "It really
grieves me to
see the esca-
lation in land
prices."
Mills also
said he was .
bothered by
intermedi-
aries who Thaxton
stepped in for
speculative purposes and
took advantage of the coun-
ty's hot real estate market.
Jordyn Holdings does not
yet own the property, but has
a purchase contract with the
property owners, Robert and
Albert Blackburn. If Jordyn.
does notclose on its deal
with the Blackburns by April
13, then the county will no
longer be obligated to com-
plete the purchase.
"That's one of the pitfalls
in a market-driven program,"
said commissioner Jon Thax-
ton to Mills. "You're not see-
ing the number of deals
we've 'walked away from be-
cause the price was too high."

Providers, county agree on ordinance


The new law brings county code in line
with state standards and deals with
additional matters ranging from
transportation to immunization records.


BYWARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR

After discussing it a few
times, Sarasota County com-
missioners were finally able
to unanimously approve an
amended family-home child-
care ordinance Wednesday.
The vote came after county
health and human services
staff made a concentrated
effort to get input from the
135 family child-care home
providers in Sarasota County.
Twice before, staff had
held public meetings on pro-
posed changes to the ordi-
nance, only to hear from the,
providers ,hat they had not
been provided with notice of
the meetings or an opportun-
ity to participate.
After the last public hear-
ing in November, the depart-
ment held two public meet-
ings to solicit comments
from the providers and sent
them all a notice of the meet-
ings, said Homer Rice, envi-
ronmental administrator of
the department. In addition,
staff met with the officers of
the two local family-home
child-care associations to get
their input.
Rice said 30 family child-
care providers attended the
meetings.

Requiring immunization
records before the first day of

written authorization and the

Requiring an attendance

Noting that she had re-
ceived no e-mails or phone
calls this time, commissioner
Shannon Staub said, "The
providers feel like they're
part of the effort and partners
rather than being on the re-
ceiving end. This will pay off
in the end."
While most of the changes
to the ordinance remove lan-
guage that duplicates the

SUIT from page 1 A
sented us with a health issue
... and left us with no other
choice other than what we're
doing."
Highest bidder
The Marsh Creek Road
home, valued at $388,000, has
been vacant for at least a year.
It's in the Sawgrass develop-
ment with the homeowner's
association keepirig up lawn
maintenance. The owner is
listed as John Powell Project


Management in England, but
like city officials, the Venice
Gondolier Sun was unable to
locate a working phone num-
ber.
Audrey Rose Allen-Wordell
is the mobile home's owner,
but the only answer to knocks
on her door for comment
were from a pair of yapping
dogs. Neighbors echo city
staff complaints that the Wor-
dells dodge certified letters
and refuse to answer their
door.
The city attorney could not


offer a timeline for how long
the cases will take. Like most
legal matters, resolution will
depend on how vigorously
the defendants contest the
cases.
Neither homeowner's at-
tendance record will matter
in these court proceedings. If
their propensity for missing
governmental sessions con-
tinues, the cases will contin-
ue, Anderson said.
"If they file a response and
want to contest, then it could
be a while in the courts,"


Anderson said. "If they don't
respond ... it could close ra-
ther quickly."
If Venice wins on the dirty
pool foreclosure, the house
would be auctioned off to the
highest bidder with the city
eligible to bid. Proceeds of the
sale would go to cover the
$34,100 in city fines, with the
excess proceeds to the cur-
rent owner.
No reply at all
In the mobile home case, a
city win would require the


owner to either repair or
remove the tie-down roof.
Should Allen-Wordell refuse
to comply with the court
order, as she has with the
code board's orders, a demoli-
tion order can be issued and
the city can tear down the
home.
Allen-Wordell's fines, which
started in June 2003, were
capped at $12,385 by the code
board. The county property
appraiser only values the mo-
bile home and its lot at $34,000.
Mier feels more compas-
sion for the Wordells, who still
live in the mobile home, than
for the vacant Sawgrass de-


velopment house owned by a
company in England.
But the mobile home has
failed repeated safety inspec-
tions, and the city has no
other option, Mier said.
"I feel saddened the Wor-
dells have not come forward
to make any statements or
voice thoughts on what
they're thinking about," Mier
said. "We have afforded them
every opportunity to come to
any of our meetings over the
past year. They've made no
attempts to contact us."

and locals.
For instance, there are nu-
merous events campers and
the general public can partic-
ipate in. Among them are a
7:30 a.m. Thursday guided
bird walk; a 8:30 a.m. Friday
ranger-led walk; an 8:30 a.m.
Sunday scrub walk (the park
contains the largest contigu-
ous section of scrub jay habi-
tat in Sarasota County); and
guided canoe trips.
Roche said the park now
has a full staff of 11 people.
About 30 volunteers help out
with the various programs


during any given week.
Last fall, Roche also hired
Tony Clements as assistant
park manager.
"Tony was a ranger here for
four years about eight years
ago," Roche said. "Then he
went West and came back
home with a lot of good ideas
from the various parks he's
worked at."
Against the odds
In addition to his more
than 30 years in the park ser-
vice, Roche brings real and
harrowing life experience to


his job.When he.was assistant
park manager, Roche nearly
died from a flesh-eating bac-
teria that led to the amputa-
tion of his right leg at the hip'
in August 2001.
Roche was on a fishing
vacation in Palm Coast, Fla.,
between St. Augustine and
Daytona Beach.
That is when and where
Roche thinks the flesh-eating
bacteria, vibrio volnificus, got
into his body through a cut on
his leg while he was wading in
salt water.
The extremely rare bacte-


ria was aggressive. Making
matters worse was John's dia-
betes.
'All my systems failed,"
Roche said then. "I had a
heart attack, feeding tubes
were sticking out of me, I was
on a respirator, I was totally
out for 17 days, and I had Last
Rites three times."
Roche, 53, went through
lengthy and painful surgeries
and therapy and was finally fit-
tedwith a bionic prosthesis.
He returned to his park job
almost one year after the inci-
dent.


PAY from pageA A


"It's just a sad day in hell
when a citizen can't question
government," Gary Anderson
said. "It really pains me a city
would go after an individual
who was just trying to do the
right thing. Guess it's better to
look the other way and not do
the right thing."
Mayor Dean Calamaras,
who had to defend himself
against one of those four
ethics complaints, sees it
completely differently. Three
of four charges have been dis-
missed, with the fourth still
being reviewed..
Defense fees for Calamaras
are at $6,000 from what the
mayor considers nothing
more than a political move to
get Gary Anderson elected,
and $17,000 total for the three
dismissed cases.
"The charges should never
have been brought," Cala-
maras said. "They shouldd've
been thrown out. They were
done with no other intent
other than to harass and try to
discredit us. ... Gary An-
derson shouldn't get a free
ride."
In the clear
For now, the new policy
will not be used against Gary
Anderson because the 30-day
deadline has expired, accord-
ing to council member Rick
Tacy. The request for reim-
bursement of costs must be
filed with the Florida
Commission on Ethics within
30 days of its ruling, and that
window has already closed on
those three complaints.
The one against city
employee Steve Randall on
allegations of improperly'
handling computer contracts
has not been resolved, and
the commission's confiden-
tiality policy prevents it from
discussing details.
City Attorney Bob
Anderson, who made the
determination, is not actively
pursuing any fee recoveries,
he said. This is not a blanket
policy and will be 'evaluated
on a case-by-case basis.
"It's easy to accuse people
of wrongdoing," the city attor-
ney said. "What this says is,
you better check your facts
and make sure there's a factu-
al basis for your complaint
before you accuse an official
of wrongdoing. But for the
most part, I think any respon-
sible citizen would check that
before filing."
The city pays an official's
defense costs once he or she
is cleared. Tuesday's resolu-
tion allows the city to go after
the plaintiff to recover that
money if the Commission on
Ethics rules the charges were
filed with "reckless disregard"
and contained "false informa-
tion," but there are only 30
days to make that request,
under state law.
Calamaras would want to
go after Gary Anderson his
opponent for the 2004 may-
oral race for the city's
$6,000 if the 30-day limit had-
n't expired.
"Absolutely I would," Cala-


maras said. "It was frivolous
from the beginning.... And it's
being done that way across the
state because of how easy it is
to bring these charges. Anyone
can do it, and all you need is a
postage stamp."
The two-time candidate
for city council continues to
stand by his claims the com-
plaints were hot politically
motivated or frivolous. Gary


Anderson wasn't running
against the mayor in 2003
when the charges were made.
As for coming after him for
the money, Gary Anderson
said, "You can't get blood out
of a turnip." He doesn't own
any property, and recently
lost his job as a manager at a
local restaurant.
Enforcing this new, policy,
however, will prevent ordi-


nary residents without mon-
ey from questioning local
government, he said.
"It'. just putting the fear of
God in people," GaryAnderson
said. "You think something is
going on ... so you put it in the
hands of the authorities who
deal with that. That's how the
system is supposed to work,
but if you can't try the system,
what's the point?"

Lady Indians crush Ranch, Manatee next


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

The district semifinals aren't sup-
posed to be this easy, are they?
The top-seeded Venice High girls
basketball team totally dominated
fourth seed and host Lakewood
Ranch in every facet of their Class 5A
District 11 match-up Thursday night,
spelling an incredibly easy 71-24 Lady
Indian victory.
Things will get a whole lot tougher
in a hurry as Venice faces Manatee in
Saturday 7 p.m. final, again on the
Ranch.
The last time Venice and Manatee
played, the Lady Indians won by 16 -
which is a heck of a lot closer than
Thursday's 47 point whipping of the
Lady Mustangs.
"It's the same thing all year -
push the ball up," said Venice coach
Joe DiGiacomo, whose team
improved to 20-6. "Our pressure cre--


- ated a lot of turnovers and we came
out and shot the ball well."
Guard Natalie Gaudreau ledVenice
with 15 points all in the first half.
Center Lisa Hough had 10 points and
in the third quarter grabbed her
1,000th career .rebound. Twelve Lady
Indians entered the scoring column.
The game got out of hand early.
Venice scored the first 15 points of
the game before Ranch could score a
bucket. It was a ridiculous 30-4 after
one quarter.
Venice cooled off in the second
quarter, only scoring 20 points. The
halftime score was 50-14..
If it were the old days, the Lady
Indians might have had a shot at
scoring 100 points. With a.running
clock the entire second half, Venice
still scored 21 points.
H6ugh came into the game need-
ing four rebounds to reach 1,000 for
her illustrious career. With 5:08
remaining in the third quarter, she


Venice Highi's Dana Nostin, left, and Lisa Hough attempt a steal from
Lakewood Ranch's Kristen Fulmer. Venice defeated Lakewood Ranch 71-24
to move on to play Manatee High School Saturday in the Class 5A District 11
Tournament Championship game.

second half action of Thursday's game at Lakewood Ranch.


grabbed a board and sank a basket
.for the milestone.
Hough had registered her 1,000th
career point earlier in the season.
What's next?
"To get to the next level and to
play at home," she said.
Winning the district champi-
onship would insure a home game
in the regionals.
,Besides Gaudreau and Hough,
Vickie Mitchell had eight first half
points. Guard Maria Cooke had
three 3-point goals for nine points.
Dana Nostin and Kailey Dettmann
each had two.
Venice finished with nine treys.
The reserves also got lots of play-
ing time. Ashley Lane had three field
goals in the fourth quarter.
And now Manatee, which rallied
in the fourth quarter to stun second-
seed Charlotte in' Thursday's other
semifinal, 40-37.
Venice defeated Manatee twice
during the regular season, once on
a half-court, buzzer-beating bomb`


by Gaudreau. Charlotte was the
only school in district to beat
Venice.
"I have mixed feelings about play-
ing Manatee," Hough said. "1 wanted
another shot at Charlorte. But's it's
OK."
"Manatee matches up well with
us," DiGiacomo said.
With a final record of 16-11,
Lakewood Ranch must have
matched up well against somebody.

Vikings look to get off the schneid


BY CLAUDE LEWIS
SPORTS EDITOR

Skip Poole's long drive
back to Geoigia last Saturday
night was excruciating.
Making the drive painful
for the coach of the Venice
Vikings was a 23-20 loss to
the Cape Coral Fear in a game
that was decided in the final
seconds.
A last-second field goal
officially ruined Poole's night.
The setback put the Vik-
ings' record at 0-3 in the
Southern States Football
League.
While there were a lot of
bright spots in the Vikings
latest defeat, it no doubt was
the screw-ups that kept re-
playing through Poole's mind
during the eight-hour mid-
night ride.
The two biggest areas of
concern were special teams
and penalties.
Cape Coral scored two
early touchdowns on a kick-
off and punt return. They put
the home side in a 13-0 hole.
The Fear only scored one
touchdown the rest of the
game.
"Special teams are killing
.us," Poole said. "I've been
preaching it over and over.
We need our best players
-out there, executing. We can't
have guys saying 'I'm hurt' or
'I'm saving myself for offense
or defense.' We have to have
them."
Poole and new special
teams coach Bob Carroll will
spend a lot of time on spec-
ial teams in practice this
week.


Then there were the pen-
alties 15 of them for a
whopping 168 yards.
"There were a couple of
them that I disagreed with,"
Poole said. "The pass inter-
ference and the roughing
the punter. The late hit near
the end of the game hurt us.
The penalties show a lack of
discipline."
Venice had a chance to
win the game after scoring a
touchdown late in the game
to tie the score at 20. An
extra point would win it. A
bad snap resulted in a low
kick that was blocked.
"The little things," Poole
said. "If a frog had wings, it
wouldn't bump it's ass."
There were a lot of posi-
tives.
The defensive line played
strong against the run. The
linebackers and backs step-
ped up against the pass.
The offensive line moved
the Fear defensive front, al-
lowing Chauncey Jones to
rush for 144 yards and two
touchdowns.
"The other teams will tell
you we're a hard-hitting
bunch," Poole said. "Win-
ning is contagious. We're
finding ways to lose. We
need to get a win to turn it
around."
* *
The Vikings are at home
again this Saturday night, as
they will take on the East
Coast Reapers.
The Reapers are an ex-
pansion team based in Del-
ray Beach. Their record is
2-1 in the SSFL's AFC East.

BY GREG GILES
STAFF WRITER

New leadership under
Vickie Marble, principal at
Venice's Student Leadership
Academy since December, is
providing stability and allow-
ing the school to focus on its
mission teaching kids.
After a rocky start, month-
ly charter school board
meetings are now filled with
exciting news about adding
music and art programs,
expanding classrooms,
school dances, parent fund-
raisers and the purchase of
new school books.
Marble, who has extensive
experience running charter
schools, is excited about the
progress SLA is making.
"For a first-year charter
school we are doing well" in
spite of initial difficulties,
Marble said. "We have a strong
governing board, strong par-
ental involvement, wonderful
kids, committed teachers
and community support all
the makings of becoming a
high quality charter, which is
my goal."


New finance system
But legal fees are mount-
ing and contract settlement
negotiations with its founder
continue.
Founding principal Nancy
Sanders left the school for
health reasons shortly after it
opened, and had to address
questions about her account-
ing practices while she was
on medical leave.
The board voted to seek a
new principal. Sanders re-
sponded in Janubry by suing
SIA for breach of contract,
demanding the buy-out of
her five-year contract.
Since then Marble has
restored order with a new
financial system that includes
a monthly presentation to the
board by outside accountant
Jamie Killorin. Marble also
added time sheets for employ-
ees and weekly, billing proce-
dures:
"The new finance system
is working well," Marble told
the SLA board on Feb. 9.
In spite of the changes, the
school faces monthly legal
fees placing a heavy burden
on the school.


Killorin informed the board
of a $10,000 deficit for the
month of January, mostly
due to legal fees associated
with Sanders' case, she said.
The monthly deficit is like-
ly to last for the remainder of
the year, board member Tom
Trammell acknowledged.
Federal start-up grants
may be able to ease some of
the pressure elsewhere in the
budget, but those funds are
earmarked for specific pur-
poses and may not be used
. to address legal challenges.

Receipts approved
The board wasn't happy
about it, but voted Feb. 9 to
reimburse Sanders for $990
in expenses dating back to
June 2003 before the school
opened.
Board president Norm
MacLellan expressed disap-
pointment the board hadn't
received the receipts earlier.
Sanders also submitted an'
extensive list of donated
items, including a TV and two'
refrigerators. In return, she'
would like the school to ac-,
knowledge the donations for,


tax purposes.
The board agreed to meet
her request, noting its
501(c)(3) nonprofit status
was still pending. It also re-
quested staff confirm the
items on the list.

Lawsuit update
School attorney Lorraine
Hultman was there to brief the
board in a closed-door session
and to strategize about how to
address Sander's demands.
Sanders is suing for the full
amount of the contract,
which, at the high end, could
be as much as $480,000
including benefits. The
school's insurance doesn't
cover suits for breach of con-
tract.
Sanders' five-year contract
with SLA calls for an annual
salary of $75,000, plus retire-
ment, leave and other benefits
not to exceed 40 percent of the
salary, plus six days for per-
sonal leave.
The contract includes a
clause that it would be void
should the principal be found
in violation of any state or fed-
eral law, school board rules or

Hunter and Allen Bahr,
who had moved to Lakeland,
agreed on a price. Marine
Assist raised the boat on Jan.
27.
The owner hadn't been to
the boat in years, according
to Hunter. Leaves had accu-
mulated and plugged the
drain, causing the boat to fill
up with rain water and sink,
said Hunter. Surprisingly, the
boat didn't have an auto
bilge pump.
Bahr called Marine Assist
back a few days later and
said, "How about I send you
the title to the boat for pull-
ing it out?" Hunter agreed.
This happens once in a
while, said Hunter. The own-
er had gotten a divorce and'
lost interest in the boat, he
said. The sailboat has a book
value of $10,000-$12,000.

North Port under investigation by county, state


Test digs on diocese property the city dumped
on were mostly clean, but environmental
agencies will be taking a look for violations.


BY GEORGE MCGINN
STAFF WRITER

After eight test holes were
dug by the city of North Port
on the Diocese of Venice
property its Chamberlain
Boulevard dump site en-
croached on, the diocese is
pretty much-satisfied.
Seven of the eight holes
dug Wednesday were clean,
with the eighth hole having
some bags of garbage in it,
said Raymond Haddad, di-
rector of community building
for the Diocese ofVenice.
The eighth hole was the
one dug closest to the proper-
ty lines.
But the city's problems
may be just beginning.
Florida's Department of
Environmental Protection
has just reopened its investi-
'gation into the Chamberlain
Boulevard site, and Sarasota


County's Health Department
has started its investigation
into well contamination sur-
rounding the site.

Next steps
Haddad said that he -will
send North Port Public Works
Director James Bursick a let-
ter to confirm the remaining
items that the city needs to
complete: Dig a 27-foot by
27-foot area around where
the garbage was found to
make sure no other items are
buried there and remove
them; regrade the area; hy-
droseed; install a fence at least
6 feet high on the east side of
the city's property; and install
concrete bins to block access
to the area encroached on.
Also, the letter will ask the
city to protect the Diocese of
Venice if any contaminants
found in the encroached area
in the future, and will give the


city 30 days to complete the
survey and stake out the
property line. After that is
completed, the diocese will
send its own surveyor out to
verify that the city did it cor-
rectly.

DEP concerns
According to DEP External
Activities Coordinator Pamala
Vazquez, the only thing the
city is allowed to do at the
site is move concrete and
dirt. The DEP became con-
cerned after finding out about
the encroachment on the
property owned by the Dio-
cese of Venice.
"We will be contacting the
city to find out why they
were so quick to accommo-
date the church," said Vaz-
quez.
Vazquez verified there is
an open investigation against
the city, but could not com-
ment on whether the agency
is planning to fine the city or
close the site. She said that
decision will be made after
the DEP finishes its investiga-
.tion.

Marc Swartz and Michael Berry, of the Sarasota County Health Department, conducted a site
survey of theChamberlain Boulevard dump site Wednesday in preparation for the investigation
into possible water contamination.


The property that belongs to the Diocese of Venice looks like the moon's surface after eight test holes were dug under the super-
vision of Raymond Haddad, director of building community.


The DEP inspected the
Chamberlain site in January
and shut it down. The city
needs to file an application or
request an exemption to
reopen the site.

Water issues
Engineer Marc Swartz and
environmental specialist
Michael Bern', from the Sara-
sota County Health Depart-
ment, paid a surprise visit
Wednesday afternoon to the
Chamberlain site. They had
to gain entry by climbing
over brush at die end of the
fence.
"We are here to investigate
die portable water weUs with-
in a quarter-nmile grid of this
(Chamberlain) site," Swartz
said.
County reports indicate
there are numerous homes
\with domestic water supplies,
and the county is concerned


about the water surrounding
the site. The well of one resi-
dent, who wished to remain
anonymous, was tested, re-
vealing a serious problem
with the water. That resident
lives within the quarter-mnile
grid.
The county will be contact-
ing area residents who have
potable water supplies to ask
permission to test their water.
"There is no cost to the
public, and results take about
four to six weeks," Berry said.
The county will be testing
wells for chemicals that may
indicate contamination such
as petroleum, pesticides and
solvents, Swartz said.
The cotmnty expects it to
take a week to get everyone's
water tested.

Sarasota County saving 'green' with hybrid vehicles


S arasota County is taking possession of
five hard-to-get Ford hybrid SUVs.
Each will have a fuel saving of $400-
$500 a year over nonhybrid Ford Escapes,
Norm West, the county's vehicle replacement
coordinator, told us.
West said he has been working with
Sarasota Ford since 2002 to get the vehicles.
It might be propitious of other govern-
ment entities, such as Charlotte and DeSoto
counties and the cities of North Port and
Punta Gorda, to get in line to purchase the
cost-saving vehicles.
West has already obtained one of the SUVs
and anticipates taking title to four more with-
in a month.
He says the. hybrid gets about 10 miles
more per gallon than a nonhybrid. The Ford


Escape SUV hybrid has an EPA rating of 36
miles per gallon in the city and 31 on the
highway.
John Osborne, Sarasota Ford's fleet man-
ager,,who is handling the sale with the coun-
ty, said the hybrid costs about $3,000 more
than the regular Escape, but that the nonhy-
brid would get only 22-25 miles per hour for
the 4-cylinder and 18-24 for theV6.
The county already owns 37 nonhybrid
Escapes. The hybrid's higher miles per gallon
for city driving is because.the electric-driven
engine is geared for slower driving (in the
25 mile per hour range), while the gasoline
engine kicks in for highway driving.
West said the new vehicles have yet to be
assigned, but will go to employees who are
likely to be driving about 15,000 miles of city


driving a year.
This is the county's second batch of hy-
brids, according to Jim Harriott, the county's
general manager of transportation planning
and transit. Since August 2002, it has obtained
three Toyota Prius vehicles that have been
averaging 41 miles per gallon. Osborne said
the Prius sells for "a little bit less," but he also
pointed out that the Prius is a four-door sedan
versus the Escape, which is an SUV
The hybrids operate on both gasoline and
electric engines. The braking system regener-
ates the battery automatically, according to
the Ford Motor Co. Web site.
While the general public has been creating
waiting lists since last summer, when the
Ford vehicle was introduced in California and
the Northeast, the hybrid has been available


in Florida only since last week. Sarasota Ford
expects to start serving the general public
later this month. West said the county bought
the Prius vehicles because Ford did not previ-
ously offer a hybrid.
West explained that Sarasota County pur-
chases the vehicles from Sarasota Ford at a
triple net invoice, which puts the cost at deal-
er cost, plus the county also receives any gov-
ernment discount available. The county's
price for the new hybrids is $24,000, while the
normal cost would be in the mid-$25,000
range, according to West.
West, running a fleet replacement operation,
leases the vehicles to the proper department,
which pays a monthly fee from its budget
It certainly appears as a way to go for other
governments that buy vehicles.


Lincoln: Of, by


and for the people


,



LORRAINE COCCARO
COLUMNIST

When I recall my long-ago
classrooms, I can see Wash-
ington's and Lincoln's por-
traits hanging high up on the
wall as if they were keeping an
eye on our activities.
Lincoln's birthday has roll-
ed around again and tomor-
row probably no obne will cel-
ebrate it. But at least we can
remember Lincoln, the presi-
dent of the people a Re-
publican.
By 1862 when Lincoln was
president, this country had
acquired quite a bit of land
beyond the original '13 col-
onies. Once we had the land,
the question arose: What do
we do with it?
According to Richard
Pence, who traced his ances-.
tors' land claims and wrote
about them, there were 70
years .of controversy and
clamor "for ever-increasing
liberalism in the disposition
of these lands."
When the South seceded,
the Republicans under Lin-
coln passed the Homestead
Act- a most liberal use of the
lands that anyone could im-
agine.
A person could file for 160
acres and "at the end of five
years if you had built a house
on it, dug a well, plowed 10
acres, fenced a specified
amount and actually lived
there," it was yours.
Of the people, by the peo-
ple and certainly for the peo-
,ple.
TFor a young man just start-
ing out or for a struggling
family, this was a godsend.
According to Pence "by 1900
about 600,000 farmers had
received clear title under the
ad to lands covering about 80
million acres."
And Lincoln and the Re-
publicans weren't done.
They passed the Morrill Act
in 1862. Never heard of it?
Perhaps you know it as the
Land Grant College Act.
The U.S. government gave
federal lands to the states to
establish 76 colleges that
would offer programs in agri-
culture, engineering and
home economics and other
"practical arts" as well as in
the traditional academic sub-


jects.
Imagine that agriculture
and engineering and "practi-
cal arts" for the common man
and home economics for the
women. Women were consid-
ered, maybe not in the mod-
ern feminist way but consid-
ered, and they were on cam-
pus and could take other tra-
ditional academic subjects.
And on May 15 ofthe same
year, President Lincoln estab-
lished the Bureau of Agri-
culture. Lincoln himself
called it the "people's depart-
ment."
Lincoln was for the people.
His actions show it. His words
show it..In a letter, to the edi-
tor of the Sangamon Journal,
New Salem, Ill., on June 13,
1836. he wrote, "I go.for all
sharing the privileges of the
government who assist in
bearing its burdens."
"All sharing the privileges."
Can we say today that all
share the privileges in pro-
portion to those who share
the burden?
Lincoln identified with the
worker, for he knew what it
was to work and work hard. In
his first annual message to
Congress in 1861 he said:
"Labor is prior to, and in-
dependent of, capital. Capital
is only the fruit of labor, and
could never have existed if
labor had not first existed.
Labor is the superior of capi-
tal, and deserves much the
higher consideration."
Today such ideas would be
considered dangerously lib-
eral by many Republicans.
Lincoln concluded, "Cap-
ital has its rights, which are as
worthy of protection as any
other rights."
Yes, let's protect those
rights, but in the spirit of
Lincoln, let us protect the.
worker the waitress, the
migrant laborer, the store
clerk, the older worker near
retirement, the injured and ill
worker.
Sadly, the Republican party
and the culture of the United
States have veered from
Lincoln's view. We glorify cap-
ital. We discount labor.
Four years from tomorrow
we will celebrate the 200th
anniversary of Lincoln's birth
(Feb. 12, 1809). I have a pretty
good idea what Lincoln
would think of our society
and the Republican Party
now.
I wonder if he would be
happier with it in four more
years.

LETTERS FROM OUR READERS


Beach has lots of possibilities


Editor:
Now that we're into the "season," I, like most residents, have
guests arriving just about every week. Part of the "seasonal" rit-
ual is to visit Venice Beach, the jetty and the pier.
Would like to acknowledge that the monies spent on recon-
structing the pier were more than worthwhile. The contractor
did a very good job.
I would like to see Venice optimize what has already been
accomplished, like power washing the pier weekly. The accu-
mulation of bird droppings is unsightly and detracts from the
enjoyment of strolling on the pier.
Shortly, millions of dollars are going to be spent refurbishing
the sand on Venice. Beach. Why doesn't the city consider
enhancing the beach with some further amenities as well? The
area should be inviting for younger people as well as senior cit-
izens:
Purchase a beach-cleaning machine to be'used daily to
make the sand more inviting. I
Build a boardwalk that would not interfere with sea turtle
nesting.
Issue concession licenses to kiosks to rent surf and sail
boats, chairs and umbrellas; and sell hats, sunglasses, sun-
screen, Venice Beach T-shirts, newspapers, magazines, etc. The
kiosks could easily be designed into the boardwalk.
Build and maintain several beach volleyball courts. Mer-
chants could sponsor teams.
Build and maintain a limited number of firepits along with
picnic tables and benches.
Install low-level lighting that wouldn't interfere with sea
turtles, so that Venice Beach could be used and enjoyed during
the evening.

Bush created the budget
crisis he's purporting to fix

Editor:
Our president has just
announced a "necessary" cut
in federal funds for veterans,
schools, welfare and many
other state 'and federal pro-
grams that serve the young,
old, poor, disabled and the
very needy among us. .
Hey, who got us in this
position where we are facing


a half-trillion-dollar budget
deficit?
He is the one who has vig-
orously and repeatedly reaf-
firmed -that massive tax cuts
for the obscenely rich must
be made permanent. We
could fully fund all these pro-
grams, and more, with a small
fraction of that tax gift to his
friends and political donors.
He intones piety and re-
spect for the teachings of
Jesus Christ, who served the


poor, the infirm, the old, the
needy and the oppressed.
Jesus also threw the moneyed
people out of the temple; he
didn't reward them with bet-
ter money lending rates.
Has anyone looked up the
word "hypocrisy" in the dic-
tionary lately?
Robert Bonadonna
Venice
Population should drive
envisioning process
Editor:
I have been following re-
ports of the terrific consulta-
tion exercise on the future of
Venice. The same questions
keeps recurring to me.
What are the Venice popu-
lation forecasts for 10 and 20
years ahead?
Do the people whose views
are genuinely being asked for
know what these larger popu-
lation figures are?
How can you envision the
various elements of any place
and set the correct priorities
unless there is a shared
understanding of the most
likely future population size
of that place?
No doubt our city manager
has already extrapolated the
enlarged population num-
bers for Venice 10 and 20
years from now, but all the
people who are being con-
sulted through the Envision
Venice program need to have
a very much larger popula-
tion uppermost in their
minds when they input their
suggestions.
Maybe at the start of every
public meeting, people should


be reminded of the popula-
tion size that Venice is fore-
cast to be in only 10 and 20
years from now, for with so
manywanting to makeVenice
their new home, Envision
Venice is as much an exercise
in quantity as quality.

Bush hears only
what he wants
Editor:
It is generally assumed by
many that President Bush,
since he poses as a practicing
and born-again Christian, is
guided in his judgments by
the voice of God.
However, since he normal-
ly listens only to those who
agree with him, it is unlikely
he ever hears the voice of
God. Instead, it would appear
that what he is hearing is
feedback of his own opinions.

Where's airport
in Envision Venice?
Editor:
A few nights ago I attended
an Envision Venice meeting. I
was surprised to find virtually
no attention given to the air-
port. I did see in the fine print
some reference to a "naval
airbase." I gathered that this
was my only chance to "envi-
sion" the Venice Municipal
Airport.
I concluded that the air-

Relax. I am a professional driver covering all Sarasota coun-

clogging the roads. I have had several near-accidents this past
month. This is the bad time of the year. To all my neighbors and

Too much. I am so sorry the
Gondolier Sun comes out on
Sunday. I spend all Sunday
morning reading the newspa-
pers, the Tribune and the

Why couldn't you give us
the Gondolier Sun on Mon-

Monday's Trib is the small-

Out-sourced. This is in
response to the caller who
complained those who drive
foreign cars often portray
themselves as patriotic Amer-
icans by putting an American
flags on their cars.
These flags are affixed to
the car by a clip. The clip is
made in a foreign country. It is
called out-sourcing our
American jobs going right out
the window.
Yuck. This is in response to
the mother who said she
changes her children on her
lap because of germs on the
changing tables. Apparently
she hasn't heard of diaper
pads.
It must have been you I sat
next to at a restaurant as you
changed your child's diaper at
the table. It ruined by appetite
and I could not finish my din-
ner.
Fine print. I am calling
about the three-days-a-week
publication. I like it. I am a
new subscriber. The only
thing is the print on the TV
guide is too small; otherwise I
ani very satisfied.
No to four. I believe city
council should reject the
four-story building proposed
for downtown. I think you


have to ask yourself when is
enough, enough. You also
have to ask, what do you say
when the person next door
wants to increase his three
story to a four story? How can
you say you can't when the
neighbor has been given per-
mission to increase his?
Too high. I am calling
about rejecting the four-story
building for downtown Ven-
ice. I am totally against it. It is
too high.
Against it. I want to go on
record as a Venice taxpayer
that I am opposed to allowing
the height exception for the
new building they are pro-
posing. I am against it.
Your body. This is in reply
to "Shame": I am the one that
said that males oppose abor-

pose it also. Does this person
really feel that women are in
the minority who feel they
can do.what they want with
their bodies? I think everyone
should be able to understand
that their body is their own
and they can do whatever
they want with it.
I cannot believe that she
would think that people,
would be in the minority to
think they can do whatever to
their bodies.
Also, in regard to your
question should city council

I think they should because if
you give an OK to one guy,
then you cannot say no to the

and now we get it after 5 and
we are the first delivery on the

don't know how to do it.
What's up? I would like to
know what is going on at
Pinebrook Road where it

is terrible.
No more. I don't think they,
should have any more build-

GUEST COLUMNIST

The recent guest column by
DickWmdgassen in the Jan. 21
edition entitled "What's so swift
about Swiftmud" contained
significant misinformation
regarding water resource is-
sues and the Southwest Flor-
ida Water Management Dis-
trict. Here is the factual infor-
mation regarding these is-
sues.
Tampa BayWater, a region-
al wholesale water utility, not
the Southwest Florida Water
Management District, is
developing a seawater desali-
nation facility The district has
pledged up to $85 million
toward the costs of construct-
ing the facility; however, none
of the funds will be released
until the plant is performing
properly.
' The -district did not sup-
port, let alone try "to force,"
transferring water from
"Northern Florida counties"
to Southwest Florida. State
law requires that local water
sources be considered before
any sources outside of the
region can be developed.
The district believes in the
local-sources-first law. In fact,
the district promoted "local
sources first" before it was a
law. We believe that local gbv-
ernments, either individually
or in regional partnerships,
should develop their water re-

The airport has been and

At the meetings in De-

the airport and its impact.
Those citizen thoughts seem
to have evaporated.
Clearly. ,there are, many
issues at the airport that relate
to the comprehensive plan.

sources.
The district has deter-
mined that sufficient local
sources of water exist to meet
demands in the southern
region of the district, includ-
ing Sarasota County, through
2025. The district has never
contemplated obtaining wat-
er from outside the state,
much less from the Missis-
sippi River, as implied in the
guest column.
The district's 'support of
nontraditional water sources
is not new. We have been pro-
moting the development of
alternative water sources for
about 10 years. Development
of traditional sources has
resulted in intrusion of sea-
water into the region's fresh-
water aquifers, reduced flow
in rivers and lower water lev-
els in lakes.
The guest columnist claim-
ed that current residents are
being unfairly required to pay
the cost of water supplies for
new growth. The fact is, the
cost of water is increasing as
the "low-hanging fruit" (i.e.,
ground water and readily
available surface water) is be-
coming more limited.
Everyone, existing and
new residents, will pay the
cost, of these new supplies
through their water bills;
however, all residents benefit
from the lower cost of previ-
ously developed supplies.,
The same is true for roads,


Harbor Drive, the Venice
Arena.
I understand that compre-
hensive plans have their one-
size-fits-all government-
mandated structure. But why
can't some citizen input also
be tailored to specific local
issues?
Envision Venice,is a good
fqprumfor formulating policy

tant issues. Why not include
the airport as one?

schools and other infrastruc-
ture.
The Legislature has given
the district the responsibility
of meeting all reasonable and
beneficial water demands in
an environmentally sustain-
able manner. Regarding the
"public expense" referred to,
by the guest columnist, the
users of water will pay for a
large portion of new supplies,
as they always have. Federal
and state funding will pay a
portion of the cost also.
This is not a "new. mis-
sion." The Legislature refined
these district responsibilities
in 1997.
Finally, the district has no
statutory authority to regu-
late growth. Local govern-
ments have the authority and
responsibility to manage
growth. Control of water de-
mand is part of the district's
statutory responsibility.
The district has extensive
regulatory and incentive-
based programs in place to
ensure that water is used in a
highly efficient manner.
These programs have proven
to be effective in reducing
water demand for all water
users, including public sup-
ply, agriculture, mining, in-
dustry, golf courses, etc.

nications director for the

Hidden Palms coming to South Venice


ROGER BUTTON
BUSINEWS


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS COLUMNIST.

A new development of 98
town homes is planned for
South Venice. On completion
of permitting, construction is
planned to commence at
Alligator Place off South
Tamiami Trail in six months.
Mediterranean style with
Italian architecture, Hidden
Palms will be a private, ungat-
ed community with tennis
courts and a swimming pool.
Residents of the two-or-three
bedroom, two-story town-
houses with attached garage
on Alligator Creek will have
gulf access for canoes and
small boats.
The development is on a
small percentage of 40 acres,
most of which is wetlands.
Prices will start at $275,000,
according to Eric Collin, oper-
ations manager for Merca
Real Estate of Sarasota. The
company has recently devel-
oped Homewood Suites by
Hilton Hotel in Sarasota and
received an award for the
design.

Barbecues and bikes
A new takeout restaurant
has opened in Nokomis:
Beefy's Open Pit Barbeque at
671 Tamiami Trail.
With 25 years experience,
owner Herb "Beefy" Michael
sold his two pit barbecues in
Annapolis, Md., in 1999 and
came to Osprey. Recently his
daughter, Amanda, persuad-
ed him to open Beefy's.
Admitting he and his wife,
Joy, each own two Harley-
Davidsons, he is convinced
barbecue and bikes go
together. Operating in a space
smaller than his home
kitchen, he produces all the
spices for his trademark
Beefy's stacked sandwiches.
No move planned
'As far as I know, nothing is
planned to move; with only
one shift there is still room to
grow at the plant," said Terri
Cline, Jeld-Wen corporate
communications manager,
when asked about the recent
acquisition of Seasonshield of
355 Center Court inVenice.
Seasonshield began pro-
duction prior to 1988 and Bill
Gill has been president and
owner. It was the key reason
for Jeld-Wen, which makes
lots of doors, to get into the
booming Florida market with
the big increase in vinyl and
aluminum window sales,
according to Cline.
Jeld-Wen, a privately held
company, started in Oregon
in 1960 and now employs
20,000 worldwide in Canada,
the United Kingdom, France,
Spain,' Latvia, Poland,
Southeast Asia and Australia.
Osprey's Grand Pavilion
Grand Pavilion is coming
to Osprey. Jebco Ventures Inc.
of Atlanta, which already has
a Grand Pavilion in Atlanta, is
starting construction of this
new shopping development
at Tamiami Trail and Old
Venice Road, alongside
Willow Bend.
Plans are to have two
banks and a restaurant with
further development of the
14-acre property to include a
major food or big store with
20,000-30,000 square feet of


other stores in the 140,000-
square-foot building. Jim
Bridges, Jebco president,
commented, "We have been
waiting for Wal-Mart, and
now construction has started
there is tremendous activity."
Wild game specials
Casey's Grill & Tavern, the
former Key West at Venetian
Bay Boulevard on U.S. 41,
opens Feb. 28 with new
sound-proofing acoustical
absorption ceilings that gen-
eral manager Bill Coyne says
will be 40 percent quieter,
together with relaxing, easy-
listening music.
Ostrich, bison and ante-
lope will be specialty items
complementing the steak-
and-fish menu, which
includes San Francisco dish-
es.
"I invite customers to sug-
gest a recipe which could be
cooked for 300 people and, if
selected, we will cook it and
they can come in and work
the kitchen with us that
night," said Coyne.
High-rollers welcomed
One hundred percent of
the proceeds from the 2005
Casino Night will benefit All
Faiths Food Bank. Casino
Night 2004 raised nearly
$10,000 and this year it will be
bigger and better, comment-
ed Aundria Shootes, develop-'
ment director. The venue
again is Aston Gardens at
Pelican Pointe Senior Living
Community.
You don't have to be a
Suncoast high-roller to enjoy
the casino atmosphere, which
starts at 7.30 p.m. on Friday,
March 11. Tickets are now
available; call Mollie
Hemandez at 240-1000.
Gas station for sale
Another sign of the
increasing property values in
Nokomis appeared recently,
with the Chevron Gas Station
on Tarpiami Trail by Albee
Road coming on the market at
$1 million.
Osprey, Bradenton then
moving south
Hank Goldsby, president
and CEO of First America
Bank, said construction of its
new 8,300-square-foot
branch office at Grand
Pavilion on Tamiami Trail in
Osprey by the entrance to
Willow Bend is really coming
along. It will occupy 4,000
square feet of the building;
the additional space is for
future expansion.
It's an eight-month project,
so initially the bank is operat-
ing from a temporary trailer
on site. Manager Dee
Papaioannou and colleagues
have already amassed assets
of $43 million.
"Eventually we would like
to move south, this could fol-
low the, opening of our
Bradenton office in May," said
Goldsby.
Filling a critical
community need
Celebrating the centenary
of the Boys & Girls Clubs of
America in 2006, Venice will
open its first club thanks to
generous donations and the
commitment of business
people and residents,
announced Douglas Kerr, vice
president of development,
recently.
There are 6,800 students in
the elementary and middle
schools inVenice; only 570 are
participating in any kind of
after-school program.
The Robert & Joan Lee
Boys & Girls Club ground-
breaking will take place this
year on property adjacent to
the Special Olympics.complex
on Gulf Coast Boulevard.
Construction of the 30,000-
square-foot club will take


about eight months.
"The greatest trouble time
,for kids when 98 percent
have no parent at home is
from 3-7 p.m., when we are
open providing leadership,
career, life skills, arts and
recreational programs for 6-
to 18-year-olds," said David
Daniels, area director.
Costing a fortune
(Five 4,000 gallon fuel tanks,
6 feet tall and 25 feet long,
weighing 5,000-6,000 pound,
together with 400 feet of pip-
ing have been removed after
pumping out 6,800 gallons of
water and 1,100 gallons of fuel
from Classic Creations' new
store location at 2387-9 South
Tamiami Trail. The items are
estimated to have been in the
ground since the mid-1960s.
No holes were found in the
tanks, but soil samples are.
being analyzed for contami-
nation.
"It is already costing a for-
tune at $40,000 and from
there on I don't know," said
Evan Duke, business co-
owner.
With a satisfactory envi-
ronmental report, construc-
tion will start in April with
completion in 14 months.
Hurricanes drove her
to Nokomis
Audrey Greco opened
Nokomis Barber Shop in the
former Don's Barbers at 627
North Tamiami Trail in the
Park Isles Plaza. Originally
from Brooklyn and a hair-
dresser since 1978, she
worked in Regis salons in
Sarasota and the East Coast.
'After being hammered
with four hurricanes in West
Palm Beach, I wanted to
return to Sarasota," said
Greco.
Christine Walter of
Richardson Kleibery Walter
handled the leasing.
Nautical anniversary
Celebrating the 10th
anniversary of the Nautical
Trader this year are Joe and
Claire Monroe, affectionately
known as the "water enthusi-
asts."
"We just love boating and

have lived on a boat for the
past 20 years," said Joe
Monroe.
A former Navy pilot, stock-
broker, pool service supplier,
printer and automobile engi-
neer, he admitted persuading
his wife, a partner in a
Bradenton ladies fashion
store, to acquire this Nokomis
store in 1995. Responding to
an advertisement and visiting
the store, formerly the
Nokomis Post Office, on
Colonia Lane, they under-
standably fell in love with the
Nautical Trader.
Realizing it had a unique
opportunity in marine con-
signment that had not been
exploited, they concentrated
on upgrading the full-service
boating, sailing, fishing, div-
ing and skiing opportunities
plus the. Aladdin's cave of
unusual historical marine
items coming from collectors'
homes and boats.
Of the 8,000 items on dis-
play, 5,000 are consigned,
including an original steamer
trunk; a World War II life-raft
reflector; sextants; and even a
100-year-old cased ship mod-
el.
Working alongside the
Monroes is Jim Johnson, a for-
mer electronics engineer and
carpenter with-his own wood
shop in the store.
It's a unique niche busi-
ness, commented Monroe as
he and his wife raised their
glasses to celebrate a decade
in the Nautical Trader.

BLSI SS MATTERS


Who is vandalizing his signs?


That's the question to which George Huhn,
Remax commercial Realtor in Venice, is seeking
answers.


BY ROGER BUTTON
BUSINESS COLUMNIST


During the past three
weeks some of George Huhn's
real estate signs have been
removed from locations in
South Venice and Venice
Marketplace. Others, like the
one outside Office Depot at
the Venice Marketplace, have
been vandalized.
Only last summer he
replaced signs at a cost of
$1,300 following the damag-
ing. winds of the four hurri-
canes. Each sign costs around
$80, is about 5 feet by 4 feet,
made of wood or corrugated
plastic fitted to plywood, and
securely fixed to posts.
"In 10 years it's a most per-
plexing mystery. Once in a
while one will blow down, but
for almost all to disappear at
once is clearly baffling and
malicious," said Huhn.
He has been in touch with
the sheriff's office, which was
unaware of the problem and
suggested he make a report.
Venice Area Board of Real-
tors Executive Vice President
Marlene Merkle said Huhn
had reported the problem
and she had put out an e-mail


to members. To her surprise,
in just three days 14 Realtors
operating in the Venice,
Englewood and Port
Charlotte areas had respond-
ed with details of signs having
been stolen or defaced. .
"It's a really big problem. I
am amazed it is such a wide-
spread problem in this area.
We recommend our mem-
bers contact the police and
make a report," said Merkel.
She recalled that years ago
there was a similar problem,
but it hadn't resurfaced until
recently. An individual sign
being stolen is not a high pri-
ority, but to have all these
responses in so few days sug-
gests it needs some attention,
she said.
Vandalism is a problem
Merkle thinks can be solved
only if the public reports van-
dalism when it happens. With
so many Realtors involved,
she hopes the police will pay
more attention because the
customized signs are expen-
sive when they have to be
replaced.
"We just found out as a,
result of our e-mail bulletin
board that 14 Realtors have
responded immediately, and


we are expecting more to
report similar problems with
vandalized and missing
Realtor signs," confirmed
Brian Meurs, president of the
Venice Area Board of Realtors.
Plans are being coordinat-
ed to get together with col-
leagues in South Sarasota
County to discuss a plan of
action incorporating local
officials and the police.
Typically signs are on pri-
vate property, so county code
enforcement officers are not
involved, and if there is any
infringement of enforcement
rules they notify Realtors.
Sarasota County Sheriff's
Sgt. Chuck Lesaltato said that
on receiving a report filed by a
Realtor, detectives would re-
view and investigate, and if a
suspect was identified, arrest
the individual on a charge of
criminal mischief for vandal-
ism if the sign had been de-
faced.
If the sign were stolen it
would be theft, a misde-
meanor, unless the sign were
valued at more than $300,
when it would be grand theft,
a felony.
To discourage and prevent
tampering with signs, he
asked the public to report
suspicious actions by calling
the sheriff's department or
other local law enforcement
agency.

POLICE BEAT


'If you weren't a cop -'
Fleeing from- then talk-
ing trash to and fighting with
police officers is not a good
way to move ahead in life, a
Sarasota County Sheriffs Of-
fice report shows.
Jonathan L. Wheeler, 23,
was arrested arid charged
with fleeing to elude at high
speed, DUI, no valid driver
license and resisting an officer
with violence.
The incident happened on
U.S. 41 at State Road 776 at
1:01 a.m., Feb. 5.
According to the police re-
port, a deputy patrolling U.S.
41 north near Short Road
picked Wheeler's van up on
radar doing 71 miles per hour
going south.
The deputy made a U-turn
and turned on lights-and si-
ren.
Wheeler accelerated to 80
miles per hour. His tail lights
came on as if he had put the
van in reverse. The van jerked
from side to side and contin-
ued south.
When he reached the split
at U.S. 41 and S.R. 776,Wheel-


er lost control, spun 360
degrees on the roadway, went
backward over a sidewalk and
across a grassy shoulder and
nearly crashed into brand
new cars in the Bill Buck
Chevrolet lot.
Police told Wheeler several
times to get out of the van. He
finally got out, but would not
lie on the ground. It took sev-
eral deputies to put him
down.
Wheeler said, "I'm a loser,
just shoot me, Jesus forgive
.my sins."
Wheeler was taken to jail
and was processed.
"If you weren't a cop,"
Wheeler told a jailer as he was
being fingerprinted, "you
would catch one in the
mouth."
That started it again.
Wheeler tensed and a dep-
uty used a wrist lock to try to
control him.
Wheeler went down and
took the deputy with him.
It took two more deputies
and a stun gun to finally sub-
due Wheeler.
After saying he would take


the breath test, Wheeler stuck
out his tongue and spit. When
it came time to take the test,
he told jailers he wanted to be
taken back to his cell.
He was told that refusal to
take the test would result in
loss of his.driver license for at
least a year.
"I don't give a --," he
said. "Take me back to my
cell."

WHAT TEETH ARE MADE OF
Our teeth are actually living structures which require a blood supply to
maintain them in health as part of our bodies. As we grow older, they
change in calcification, color, hardness, brittleness and shape.
Teeth consist of enamel, dentin, cementum, and pulp tissue. Enamel is
the hardest substance in the body. It Is 95% calcified (mineralized). As
compare with dentin at 70% and cementum at 50%, enamel is almost
as hard as some semiprecious stones, and a cementum is about the
same hardness as normal bone. Dentin hardness is somewhere
between. Well-calcified enamel is translucent, usually yielding a light
yellow color, a reflection of the natural color of the underlying dentin.
White enamel is really quite uncommon. Even enamel that appears
very white has in fact some yellow in it. Although we all want very
white teeth this may be an impossible dream. There are some
conditions which just don't respond to whitening and bleaching
techniques as we would like. ,

Have paints, will travel


STORY BY CHARLEEN JAEB GUEST WRITER

A stroll at the beach led to the discovery

of a group of artists who paint together at
various scenic sites in Venice and have
been doing it for years.


There's more to strolling
than meets the eye.
One of my greatest joys in
Venice is a daily walk on the
beach and on to the Jetty.
Every stroll is a new adven-
ture. In less than an hour you
could fill pages in a journal,
shoot a roll of film, see things
you've never seen, and talk to
many friendly and interesting
people.
It's healthy.
It's free (even the parking at
the jetty'l.
It's not crowded.
Its relaxing.
What's surprising to me is
the number of folks who are
not aware or don't take
advantage of this exciting
ac dviry.
A. recent Thursday morn-
ing hike introduced me to the
artists on the beach.
Several weeks ago I spotted
a scattering of about a dozen
ladies on the beach near the
Venice jery: They were sitting
on lawn chairs and at picnic
tables, with easels, painting
very professional-looking pic-
tures. Captivated by the
vibrant colors on their pallets
and their clothes against the
background of rocks, water,
trees, birds and multi-colored
villas, I had to capture the
scene on my ever-present


digital camera. -
Speaking with the women,
I learned they are an informal
group with a common bond
- they love to paint. Many
have been friends as long as
25 years.
Florence Stiefeld, a newer
member of the group, said
she was "thrilled to be paint-
ing with this wonderful group
in Florida."
Some met in art classes
and some at shows and gal-
leries where they exhibit. The
reason why their work looks
professional is because these
ladies are professional artists.
All of them have taken art
classes and continue to do so.
Some of them have taught art
classes. Others own or have
owned galleries. All of them
exhibit and sell their paint-
ings. They work in a variety of
media: oil, watercolor, pencil
and pastel.
"A part of our Thursday
morning excursions I enjoy
most is when we critique each
others work," Venice resident
Carole Prestia said.
The women gather with
their easels and paint at about
9:30 a.m. on a beach or other
scenic area in or around
Venice or Sarasota. At 11:30
a.m. they cluster together and
make comments orr each

other's creations. At. noon
they go to lunch. They usually
spend about three weeks in a
location. I was fortunate to
encounter them at Venice
Beach. The following week
they planned to go to
Manasota Beach.
To me it was awesome to
see masterpieces in the mak-
ing.
Look for the results in a
gallery near you or in the next
member show at the Venice
Art Center. '

SOUTH NEWS


Our February

calendar is crowded


The February calendar of
the South Venice Civic As-
sociation is filled with activi-
ties at our community center
on Alligator Drive. Several
important meetings will take
place, starting next week.
On Tuesday, Feb. 15, you
can come down to give blood
from 2-5 p.m. where the
Florida Blood Center-Venice
will have its bloodmobile. Be-
ing the day after Valentine's
Day, we dubbed it "Blood for
your Love."
All the blood that is col-
lected is used right here in
the community. One unit of
blood can save the lives of
three people. Think of it: You
are literally the link between
life and death. Call Valerie at
492-2177 to be scheduled in.
Every Wednesday 9 a.m.-1
p.m. from now until April 13,
the AARP counselors are at
our facility to provide free tax
advice and help to anyone
who wants to- benefit from
this service.
The CERT training begins
Wednesday, Feb. 15, 7-9 p.m.


This Community Emergency
Response Team training is
designed to help neighbor-
hoods prepare for and ro-
spond after catastrophic dis-
asters such as hurricanes, tor-
nadoes and other major
emergencies. You may be
able to still register; call
Barbara at 496-8411.
Our 50th anniversary pot-
luck suppers have been out-
standing, with original home-
made recipes from entrees
to desserts. It's a strain on
my diet, but they are so good!
By the way, we have wonder-
ful pocket T-shirts, mugs and
caps now available for sale,
all to help commemorate this
golden year of our vibrant
and growing South Venice
Civic Association.
There is a sad note that
goes with February: the
height of the season. The
traffic jams on South U.S. 41
from Shamrock Drive to the
Manatee Community College
Venice campus have been
horrendous.
They have caused road
rage among our working fam-
ilies trying to get to their jobs,
and their children to school;
there have been more acci-
dents on U.S. 41 than in pre-
vious years; and older folks
like me hesitate to venture
out at night into the clogged
congestion.

I've never lived in Cali-
fornia and I have never had
any interest in living there.
While the Californians I have
known have been very nice,
they do seem to be a sort of
eclectic group of bohemians
who are continually self
searching, all the while
wrapped up in yoga and feng
shui.
Politics notwithstanding,
there is just enough conser-
vative in me to think that all
that stuff is a bunch of hooey.
However, I must confess
that, just like most Californ-


ians, I. have spent an inordi-
nate amount of time trying
to find myself; and just this
morning I did.
And let me tell you, it was
not a pretty thing. What I
found, regardless of how
youthful I may think I am,
was a really crotchety old
geezer. An opinionated, semi-
arrogant, pessimistic, nega-
tive old geezer.
The older I get, the more I
think like an old man, and
the more certain I become
that everything around me is
going to hell in a handbasket.
For example, anyone fa-
miliar with the earlier genera-
tion of "From a slightly dif-
ferent .angle" knows that I
had a real thing about back-
ward baseball caps, guys who
wear hats while eating dinner,
and cars with all the windows
rolled down and weird music
cranked up real loud.

may at least have toned me
down a bit; that my nega-
tivism is more thoughtful and

Water agreement inching closer


BY WARREN RICHARDSON
SARASOTA COUNTY EDITOR


While the Peace River/
Manasota Regional Water
Supply Authority directors
took no action at its most
recent meeting on North
Port's request for more water,
the authority and city inched
closer to an agreement.
Appearing during the
public comment section of
the meeting, John Jenkins, a
Tallahassee attorney hired by
the city, likened the search
for a solution to Dorothy's
realization in the "Wizard of
Oz" that her attempt to re-
turn to Kansas lay at her feet
the whole time.
"Likewise, the answer has
been in front of us all along,"
Jenkins said.
Taking data about water
demand projects from a
Greeley and Hanson report


prepared for the Water
Planning Alliance in 2004,
Jenkins said it
appeared that
the planned
expansion of
the Peace
River facility
would ensure
an adequate
supply of wa-
ter to 2014.
T h i s Staub
board has an
opportunity to do the right
thing and enter into water
supply contracts based on the
needs of your customers," he
said.
Doing her own math, com-
missioner Shannon Staub,
Sarasota County's representa-
tive to the four-county board,
agreed.
"Let's not have a battle
over reallocations," she said..
"Let's get on with it."


Ready to deal
Staub said North Port -
according to the Greeley and
Hanson data was showing
a demand of 3.628 million
gallons of water daily in 2011.
Taking out the 2.218 mgd the
city has already been allocat-
ed from the new expansion,
leaves a 1.410 mgd shortage
for the Thomas Ranch.
Staub said Sarasota
County was ready-- contrary
to an assertion made by
North Port Utility Director
Cindi Mick in a letter to the
county to offer the city a
side contract to sell water to
meet that need.
When further supplies are
needed in 2013 and 2014,
Staub said there were some
easy solutions, such as per-
mits to withdraw water from
the Cocoplum Waterway, that
could help meet those needs.
"There's some easy ones


out there we could do all
together," Staub said.
Since late last year, the
city has threatened litigation
with the authority to obtain
an additional 5 mgd from the
planned expansion of the
Peace River facility on Kings
Highway near Arcadia.
In early January, Jenkins
proposed that the authority
do the $110 million expan-
sion at once rather than in
two phases as planned.
No action on North Port's
request is expected until next
month, when it is anticipated
the authority board will act
on water supply agreements
between the authority and its
four customers Charlotte,
Sarasota and DeSoto coun-
ties and North Port.

Hate is not an option


RELIGION BRIEFS


Toward a more perfect union


REV. SUSANNE NAZIAN
RELIGION COLUMNIST


What is a hate crime? I
would define it as vandalism
or violence directed at any-
one because of their race, reli-
gion, national origin, disabili-
ty, sex or sexual orientation.
The most common hate
crime is intimidation, the vio-
lence to the human spirit that
results in fear. Hate and hate
crimes are not the same, but
they do, I believe, come from
the same sources. The com-
mission of a crime is one fate-
ful step beyond hate.


In an ideal world, no one
would think that violence
should or could result from
prejudice. But, it is not an
ideal world. There are those
among us who are violent by
nature or nurture, who react
to being taught prejudice by
committing such crimes.
Mostly those crimes are com-
mitted by a few on the fringes
of society: we call them the
radicals, the zealots, the ter-
rorists. The fact is they are us,
part of the same human fam-
ily, who have understood our
prejudices as permission to
do violence.
According to the National
Criminal Justice Reference
Service "From 1997-1999,
sixty-one percent of hate
crime incidents were moti-
vated by race, 14 percent by
religion, 13 percent by sexual
orientation, 11 percent by
ethnicity, and 1 percent by
victim disability. The majority
of incidents motivated by
race, ethnicity, sexual orienta-
tion, or disability involved a
violent offense, while two-

"Red states" and "blue

as the infamous "hanging

the great political and moral
divides in our country. Such
divides pose considerable
challenges to progress and
peace. Charles Colson in .a
recent article described our
country's red and blue "divi-
sions" as the "new civil war." -
Such a characterization of


our times (whether or not we
embrace it) provides an
important opportunity to
address the subject of "hate"
and "hate crimes." Seeking to
promote a more perfect
union and not provoke a new
kind of war, my colleague, the
Rev. Susanne Nazian, and I,
although differing substan-
tially on most points theolog-
ical and political, have amica-
bly agreed to write together
on this subject.
As a Christian, I am under
royal command to "love my
enemies and do good to
those who persecute" me.
Christ's command to his
church excludes any form or
hint of hateful actions or
words toward anyone or any
group, be their defining cate-
gory one of: ethnicity, sex,
race or religion.
I don't believe all religions
are true. I don't believe all
moral choices are right. I
don't accept the notion that I
have to tolerate injustice,
oppression, or affirm some-

NAZIAN from page 6B


thirds of incidents motivated
by religion involved a proper-
ty offense, most commonly
vandalism." (NCJRS Web site)
As a Unitarian Universalist,
I hold to the statement
included in our organizing
Principles and Purposes, list-
ed as one of the sources of our
tradition. It reads, "The Living
Tradition we share draws
from many sources including
Jewish and Christian teach-
ings which call us to respond
to God's love by loving our
neighbors as ourselves." For
us, this command, which
finds expression in all of the
world's great faiths, calls us
back to the story of the
Samaritan. The man by the
side of the road, beaten and
bruised, unable to walk, was
rescued from his plight not by
the priest, but by a member of
one of the most hated groups,
the Samaritans. Samaritans
were thought to be ungodly
and unclean. Yet, it was the
Samaritan who helped when
no one else would. This story
offers a radically new way to


look at the concept of "neigh-
bor," as being simply a fellow
human being. The story men-
tions no issues of race or
nation or sex or sexual orien-
tation as being criteria to
determine if the man is a
neighbor. He simply is.
These issues are more than
theoretical to me. They are
deeper than who is right and
who is wrong. They are per-
sonal. I grew up in the South. I
left the Southern Baptist
Church at the age of 19, dur-
ing the Civil Rights Era. Our
preacher had insisted that
blacks would never be wel-
come in our church, that inte-
gration of churches, schools
and neighborhoods was un-
Biblical.
Early in my husband's
tenure at a medical school
here, we received a hate
phone call from the Neo-
Nazis. They'd gotten hold of a
phone list of professors and
were calling any whose last
name "sounded" Jewish. They
threatened us and our chil-
dren. I will never forget the


violence to my spirit or to my
husband's done by that series
of phone calls.
I was also serving my dis-
trict ministerial chapter as
President when Paul Hill
gunned down two people in
Pensacola, gunned them
down because he believed
God was on his side. One was
a doctor at an abortion clinic;
the other was an escort for
women there and a Unitarian
Universalist. The president of
our Association came to Pen-
sacola, where he participated
along with many of us in the
public memorial service.
A dear friend and col-
league told the painful story
of his daughter and her les-
bian partner, who were hiking
in the mountains. His daugh-
ter was shot four times, and
her partner was killed by two
men who hated.
In Tampa, I was to speak at
a County Commission meet-
ing in favor of an ordinance
banning discrimination in
housing and employment on
the basis of sexual orienta-


tion. I was horrified to see sev-
eral grocery bags full of guns
and knives seized at the door.
Violence and the hatred
that spawns it are very, very
real. So, when I hear prejudice
justified by the claim that the
Bible condones, even teaches
it, I am deeply saddened. The
Bible I read, along with the
other sacred scriptures teach-
es love, not hatred. My guid-
ing ethical principle is the
dignity and worth of all
human beings. Whatever
denies another simple
human dignity to live their
private lives in peace and
equality through intimida-
tion or crimes violates that
principle. It becomes my
solemn responsibility as a
religious person and a reli-
gious leader to. protect that
dignity, to protect life, proper-
ty and sense of safety of all
God's children.
Must I agree with every-
one's choice or agree with
everyone's political views?
Not at all. Must my public
witness be the same as yours


for me to respect your right to
hold that opinion? Certainly
not! But what I must do is to
respect each person's right to
speak and work and live in
safety, and in turn expect
them to respect mine. Hate
and hate crimes are an abom-
ination to all who seek to live
an ethical and religious life.
There is no room in any faith
for intimidation, persecution
or killing.
Learning to love one anoth-
er despite differences in both
religious and political views is
the religious task of the 21st
century. As Christians, Jews,
Muslims, Unitarian Uni-
versalists, Baha'i, Buddhists,
Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and all
other peoples of faith, it's a
central tenet of our faiths and
their prophets that we must
protect the sacredness of life.
It is not enough that we give
lip service to the concept of
neighbor. We must also strive
to learn to live in an attitude of
respect for one another's
humanity, a respect that hon-
ors the divine spark incarnate


in each of us. It is not our pro-
fession of belief but our atti-
tudes and actions that betray
our true faith and that trans-
mit it to our children.
Rev. Dolby and I have
churches close to one anoth-
er. In writing these articles,
we've come to know well the
difficulties of interfaith dia-
logue. We are not agreed on
most things, but on this we
are agreed: we will work
together across divisions of
faith and belief to condemn
crimes based on hate. We will
work together to put a human
face on the "other side,"
because knowing one anoth-
er as human beings is the best
way to transform ourselves.
As we all work together to
unite this city and this nation,
let us truly gather in the spirit
of peace.

Universalist Congregation of

DOLBY from page 6B


one else's definition of the
appropriate bounds of
human sexuality. However, I
am constrained in all my
engagements with others by
one foundational truth of
God's Word: Each person has
been made in the image of
God. For this reason, I am to
respect, protect, and honor
the dignity of every human
being and his or her property.
The Bible reveals that God
indeed "hates" the wicked
and that he is "angry" with
them every day. The Bible
reveals consistently that we


live in a moral universe and all
people will one day answer to
God's justice. It is helpful to
consider why God hates the
wicked. God hates the wicked
because their thoughts and
actions dehumanize them-
selves and their victims, all of
whom are God's image bear-
ers. Biblically speaking, dehu-
manization occurs wherever
"idolatry" is practiced, and
sadly, "idolatry" is practiced
by each of us. When we wor-
ship anything or anyone else
than God, we cease to be fully
human (created to worship


our Creator and bring glory to
him with our lives as we walk
in His ways, exercising holy
and righteous dominion over
the created order). Whether it
is at the feet of the idols of
"sexual fantasy," "religious
ideology," "educational elit-
ism," "wealth," or "racial
supremacy," idolatrous pas-
sions blind us to our own
inhumanity toward others.
Our present culture is over-
flowing with such idolatry.
Look at us! Forget blue states
and red states! We can hardly
live peaceably with those in


our own families.
Christianity should evi-
dence the reconciling and
healing purposes of Christ in
the world. To hate others and
to perform hate crimes is
completely inconsistent with
the mission of the Christian
church. Where and when she
has engaged in such activity
- the church has demon-
strated that she is completely
out of step with her Lord.
As for me, I plan to faithful-
ly engage my own heart and
my community as one who is
at war against all "idols" that


when embraced, destroy lives
and dehumanize others.
However, in the context of
such engagements, your life
and your property are safe. I
am to relate to you and speak
with you in a manner which
honors both my Lord and
you. If I disagree with your
sexual orientation, you are
still welcome in my home. If I
don't share your religious con-
victions, your house of wor-
ship is still safe next to mine. If
you fly a "blue flag," I, will
respectfully seek to under-

stand why, and in the same


manner, respectfully defend
why I fly "red." The road to a
more perfect union is lined
with respect for all, coura-
geous debate, the pursuit of
truth, the rejection of lies and
the grace and mercy of God,
our Maker. Committed to
traveling such a road, I remain
confident in a more peaceful
tomorrow. Shalom.

Center for the Deaf & Hard

of Hearing seeks donations


CASEY from page 7
ability and it has taken away
a lot of creativity and self-
sufficiency.
Plastic stuff is slowly taking
over the world.
Now, a lot of people think
plastic has simplified life
and freed up time for shop-
ping, which is really just buy-
ing more plastic. (Editor's
note: With plastic.)
Here are just a few exam-
ples I find terribly disturbing.
When I was a kid we used to
have wars on the living room
rug and our soldiers were
made out of lead. Of course,


now they won't even let us
paint cribs with lead-based
paint, so there are no more
lead soldiers for kids to have
wars with.
Guess what they use now:
plastic soldiers that will fall
over in a slight breeze. How
can you win a war with sol-
diers that won't even stand
up? Give me good old heavy,
lead soldiers anytime and I'll
beat up any army of plastic
soldiers.
Then there is the matter of
new cars. They are made out
of plastic, of course. So what
happens when they run into
something? They break up


into little pieces and scatter
all over, making a terrible
mess that nobody ever seems
to be able to clean up.
Give me good, old heavy
metal anytime (except for
music). When I was a kid and
I crashed a car, all it did was
crumple up. No mess at all.
How about styrofoam? Just
another variety of plastic. And
guess what? It never goes
away. Styrofoam cups are
ruining the ocean because
they won't eventually disap-
pear, like wood or tin.
Now, I have a nerdy friend
that says this is a good thing
because in a landfill it keeps


bad stuff from leeching into
the soil. Maybe so, but I still
don't like the idea of inventing
something that will never go
away.
One more thing: Don't ever
pick your teeth with plastic.
That stuff will slice up your
gums in nothing flat.
I suppose a lot of folks,
assuming they get this far in-
to the article, are going to
think that this is all mindless,
silly stuff. People don't want
to waste their time reading
nonsense. It steals time from
shopping (for more plastic
stuff of course), and talking
nonsense on a cell phone. But


The new Venice branch of
the Community Center for
the Deaf & Hard of Hearing
has opened at 628-A Cypress
Ave. and is need of a few small
tables and office items.
The center will be offering
beginner American Sign Lan-
guage classes at the Venice
location: Monday, Feb. 21, 10-
11 a.m. and Tuesday, 6-7 p.m.
Classes run for 10 weeks and


I feel it is much better to read
nonsense than to talk non-
sense. Somehow it's more
educational.
One last thing. There is
hope regarding plastic. We
know that any plastic will
melt if it gets really hot.
Well, I'm a patient man,


cost $50 per student. The
book is 'ABC Basic Course in
American Sign Language" by
Humphries, Padden and
O'Rourke, 1994, second edi-
tion.
To help with a donation or
to register for a class, contact
Sarah Harris, director of advo-
cacy and education, at (941)
758-2539 (voice or TDD) or
sharris@ccdhh.org.


and I figure that with our
rapidly increasing global
warming problem, one day
plastic will be all gone. I think
I'll hang around and enjoy it.

Holloways list one-of-a-kind home in Waterford


BY KIM COOL
FEATURES EDITOR


Some of the most successful
home designs occur because the
home had to conform to an odd-
shaped lot or an oddly placed
lot.
That may have been the case
with this recently listed home at
Waterford. Located onWaterford
Drive, this three-bedroom, two
and one-half-bath home has as
much or more privacy as any
home in the subdivision as well
as formal layout that is more
often found in colonial homes
up North. That also may be the
reason the owner's colonial
decor is such a perfect fit.
The lot is at the turn of


Waterford Drive, the short part
of Waterford Drive that curls
around back to the main sec-
tion. There are just a few homes
here and the listed house is the
last one, on a long narrow lot
that parallels a large lake. By
putting the garage near the
street and the entry well back
from the road, the home design-
er was able to create the feeling
of a center hall colonial without
a second floor.
One of the home's smaller
rooms is also its most charming
room a bedroom with inter-
esting bay windows that look out
at a treed space, which separates
the home from its one side
neighbor. That room is to the
right of the entry foyer.


To the left is the living and
dining area one space that
has the feeling of two separate
rooms, both of which appear
larger than their already gener-
ous dimensions because they
borrow space from each other.
One wall of the living room, the
fireplace wall, is red, a color that
makes the whole room "pop."
The ceiling fan has the appear-
ance of stained palm fronds for
the fan blades, marrying colo-
nial furniture to the tropics -
the British colonial look. There is
plenty of room for multiple
couches around the hearth and
in the warmer seasons, the
space also enjoys lake and pool-
side views.
Beyond the dining room is


the spacious kitchen, with a
door to the garage for bringing
in groceries and supplies and
access to the pool and lanai area,
another sheltered entertaining
space.
Sliding glass doors open the
lanai to the living area.
There will be an open house
Sunday, Feb. 13, from 1 to 4 p.m.
Waterford Drive is in a gated
community
For gate instructions, call the
Holloways.
Listed with Jan and Norm
Holloway for $449,900, the
house, at 1578 Waterford Drive,
can be seen by appointment.
Call Jan Holloway at (941) 483-
6699 or 485-6139 or (800) 969-
1990.

SUN PHOTOS BY KIM COOL

A formal foyer sets the stage for the theme of
the home's decor.


Thestreet-side view of the house belies its spaciousness.


The home's dining area can easily hold a for-
mal table large enough to accommodate
eight for a sit-down dinner, and a showcase
for the family china or collectibles.


The bright and airy kitchen features views
of the pond, an eating area and plenty of
storage.

Getting in touch with the outdoors


L ast week, while
spending a few days
Orlando, I was able
to venture over to Merritt
Island State Wildlife
Refuge. It has been cool
and the fishing was slow
so I took advantage of the
free time to explore. I had
been fortunate to have vis-
ited there once before dur-
ing a Florida Outdoor
Writers conference. It was
a day I have always
remembered; I saw so
many birds and alligators
it was hard to forget. The
drive back through the
wildlife refuge immediate-
ly put me back in touch
with the outdoors.
Seeing roseate spoon-
bills soar through the sky
and feed in the shallow
water moving their bills
from side to side as they
scoured the bottom was
truly special. Spoonbills
were not the only water-
fowl present. There were
hundreds of pintails dip-

neat to watch, because
when they go under li
ing for food all you se
their feathers sticking
straight up with their
heads below the wate
There were also plent
teal, storks, herons, w
pelicans and Florida
lards frolicking.
I was even lucky
enough to stumble in
old fish camp called E
Lake fish camp outside


Orlando. I drove onto the
property and it felt for a
moment like I was not in
Florida. Welln at least not
in the Florida where I live.
There were no condos
nearby and no signs of
development invading this
fish camp. I did not see
palm trees; I saw old oak
trees covered with Spanish
moss.
n I chummed up some
bluegills in one of the
ponds on the grounds. I
nm also had some bread and
s are crackers in the car so the
e ducks quickly came over
ook- to see what I had to offer. I
e is even got to feed some
baby ducks that were stay-
ing close to their mother.
r. As I was feeding the ducks,
y of I kept hearing a strange
white noise behind me. I turned
nal- to look, and there stood at
least six goats at the fence-
line, curious to see who I
to an was and what I had to eat.
East I felt like I was standing in
Ie of the middle of a farm


somewhere perhaps in
upstate NewYork. It is nice
to know that there still are '
places in Florida that
some crackers refer to as
"Old Florida." When I ran
out of bread and crackers,
I got out my camcorder
and filmed some of the
ducks on the water and
even gave the goats a
small moment of fame on
myvideo.
Fishing has always
been a way to get out and
see wildlife from the water.
By visiting the state parks
Florida has to offer, you
can get up close and per-
sonal with all the wildlife.
In my columns I have
mentioned that there had
been times when I was
fishing that I simply set my
rod down in a rod holder
to watch a dolphin play in
the wake of the boat, or a
manatee surface directly
beside the boat, or an
eagle fly by, or perhaps an
osprey soar down to grab a

Wading into the late season low tides


Here we are already
into early
February. Some of
us are starting to think
about spring. Let's face it,
spring is in the air. With
our last lirfle bit ofwinter
tides soon to be a memo-
ry, getting out on those
shallow flats will be quite
rewarding.
Sometimes getting out
there isn't as easy as one
would think. Living in
Florida allows most of us
to get into somewhat of a
comfort zone. I know of a
few that will only go fish-
ing if the air temperature
is warmer than the water
temperature. I realize
that getting up early in
the morning when it's
cold outside will not be
the easiest decision to
make, but if you do you
will find that making that
decision will result in a
great day of fishing.
Some our best fishing


Capt. Jay
Withers

times are when there is
little to no water in the
bays and harbor. The
reason for the good fish-
ing is because when the
water escapes the flats
surrounding our bays, the
fish run for what little
water they can find. This
makes fishing for the
angler a little easier task
because the guessing
game of where the fish
will be has just been
reduced to deep holes


and channel edges.
Most of us do not
have a boat that will run
on a damp sponge, so
wading around on the
shallow flats is a very pro-
ductive way to sneak up
on those fish without
spooking them. The best
way to get out and cover
some ground is to run
your boat up to about as
shallow as it will get and
quietly drop the anchor.
Here is where the foot-
work comes into play.
Before you get out of the
boat take a look around.
Look for potential signs of
fish activity. Many times
at extreme low tide situa-
tions, you will find redfish
"tailing" on the flats.
Tailing redfish is a sure
sign of feeding redfish.
After you have decided
on which direction you
will be heading in, make
your entrance into the
water as quiet as you.can.


Sound can travel very
fast in these shallow
areas, so being stealthy is
important.
One thing you will
need to keep in mind,
while wading and in
search of fish is to look
for the warmer water.
Many of our creek sys-
tems have dark muddy
bottom and thick grass
that absorbs heat from
the sun and will allow the
water temperature to rise
faster than clean sand
bottom. Some of my
favorite areas to fish dur-
ing these winter tides are
places like Catfish Creek,
Whiddens Creek and
deep into Bull Bay. All of
these locations have simi-
lar bottom and tend to
attract fish during the
cold water days of
February.
One way to determine

There are very few safe

the DELSTANG rod hold-

Mountings are available
for cars, boats, and even
bicycles. And they come
in a variety of colors. I
have one DELSTANG sit-
ting upright in my shed
for the "in between fish-

another horizontally on
the gunwale of my
canoe. It means I am
ready to go when I spot a
group of tailing redfish.
Much easier than trying
to pull out and assemble

Catching fish during a bloom of red tide


Fishing offshore gulf
waters this past
week has been
good. Although we are
experiencing a bloom of
red tide offshore, there
have been no major fish
kills reported as far as I
know.
According to Mote
Marine, red tide is a nat-
ural occurrence and in
some ways can be
healthy for the environ-
ment. The key to catch-
ing fish when there's a
red tide bloom in the
area is looking for clean,
water. My experience
with red tide and fishing
is that the fish will usual-
ly move away from
waters tainted with red
tide. With this knowledge
in hand, the solution to
having a good day of
catching fish is by fish-
ing water outside of the
red tide bloom. Often


Offshore Gulf Fishing


Capt. Dave
Pinkham

these outer rim areas
will be teeming with fish
that have moved in
search of cleaner waters.
If the water color doesn't
look right, then keep
running until you've
found clean water.
Right now the main
action out on the gulf is
bottom fishing for
grouper and snapper,
and wreck and ledge
fishing for greater
amberjack. Most of the


grouper action lately has
been with gag grouper.
In my opinion, gag
grouper are one of the
best table fish of the
grouper family. Gags
generally congregate on
rocky ledges, artificial
reefs and shipwrecks.
The best way I've found
to fish for them is by
anchoring the boat
above the area. Once this
is accomplished, the fun
begins. Dropping
weighted lines rigged
with live pinfish is one of
the best ways to hook up
with a gag grouper. Once
the fish hits, it will often
run for the bottom struc-
ture, so be ready with a
tight drag and a fast-
cranking reel. These
same areas will also hold
schools of mangrove
snapper.
The other fish to tar-
get right now on the gulf


is greater amberjack.
When fishing for amber-
jacks, I prefer to use live
fish for bait. Just about
any small live fish will
work such as threadfin
sardines, blue runners,
grunts, pin fish, and
pilchards. Actually,
amberjacks will eat just
about anything, so
include squid, crabs, and
shrimp on their dinner
menu. Amberjack have a
dark stripe that extends
from their nose to just in
front of their dorsal fin
that "lights up" when
they are feeding. When
you get into a school of
feeding amberjack, it is
not uncommon for all
anglers aboard to be
hooked up with fish at
the same time.
The key to hooking up
with an amberjack is to
just get the bait in front
of them. Using your fish
finder, you should be


able to see at what depth
the school of amberjacks
is. You may have to put
some added weight on
your line to get the bait
down to where the fish
are. Regardless of what
the fish finder indicates,
I always like to keep a
couple of hooked live
baitfish free-swimming
out behind the boat.
This seems to work well
not only for amberjacks,
but also for just about
any other sort of large
fish that may be in the
area.
Because amberjacks
are such voracious feed-
ers, a properly presented
artificial bait should not
be ruled out. One
method known to get
amberjacks up off the
bottom and feeding is to
jig with a large silver dia-
mond jig, or weighted
tube lure. The idea is to
drop the jig or tube lure
down close to the bot-


tom. The lure must be
fairly heavy so it will fall
quickly. Work the lure
back to the surface as
fast as possible, reeling
and jerking up on the
rod at the same time.
Once you retrieve the
lure, drop it back down
toward the bottom and
do it again. Even if the
fish don't hit the lure, all
this commotion will
draw some attention to
your live baits.

Get an education in boating safety


Recently, the U.S.
Coast Guard
released the annu-
al boating statistics for
Florida. Once again
there was an overall
reduction in boating
fatalities. The primary
cause of accidents con-
tinues to be drowning,
and again over 80 per-
cent of the drowning
victims were not wear-
ing life preservers.
Alcohol continues to be
a factor in the majority
of accidents.
While overall fatali-
ties are down, I am con-
cerned over the recent
number of serious boat-
ing accidents in our
local waters. We have
not yet reached prime
boating season and I
see police reports
almost weekly, describ-
ing a boating accident.
It's cause for concern

over what will happen
when the weather turns
warmer and our boating
usage increases.
The most recent acci-
dent involved two teens
from Englewood. The
young men, ages 16 and
17, were in a sixteen-
foot boat purchased just
the night before. They
were out for a day's fish-
ing and were following
another boat of friends.
They had loaded up on


baitfish and were on
their way up the inter-
coastal to their favorite
fishing hole. The first
boat passed under the
Boca Grande Bridge,
but the second boat
rammed into the bridge
pilings. The impact
threw one young man
into the water, where he
was rescued by a pass-
ing boater. Both young
men suffered head and
leg injuries and were
airlifted to a hospital,
where they are expected
to make a full recovery.
Police officers at the
scene were unable to
determine a cause, but
stated that there was no
evidence of drug or
alcohol involvement.
I am sure these are
fine young men, and we
can only guess as to
what happened. In all
probability, they are


guilty of no more than

attention to what they
were doing. At 16 years.
of age, it's easy to not
take handling a boat
seriously, particularly
when it is the first day
.out in a new boat and
they are horsing around
with friends. I know
when I was 16 and had
my dad's car for the first
time; I wasn't exactly a
responsible driver. Poor
Dad, he never could fig-
ure out why that set of
tires wore out so quick-
ly. A 16-year-old in a
boat can't be very differ-
ent. At least in a car I
was required to study a
.driving book, practice
under the watchful eye
of an adult, take a test
and only then was I

shore to the
freshwater/saltwater line
in the Manatee River, 26
miles from the Gulf.
I grew up on the
banks of that river and
can remember seeing
nothing but dead fish for
as far as the eye could
see. There has only been
one red tide since then to
rival that event.
The 1960s were a
strange time for environ-
mental events. Not only
did this time feature the
worst red tide of the last
half century but it also
sported the last killer
freeze to visit Florida.
The freeze of the 60s did-
n't just kill citrus fruit, it
killed the trees them-
selves, and several farm-
ers lost entire groves.
The killer red tides of
the 60s were so massive
that even air-breathing
animals like marine tur-
tles and bottlenose dol-
phins were killed. The
bloom was so extensive
that these animals could
not get out of it and died
of airborne toxins.
In the early 1970s
there was another very
bad red tide. This one
was not as extensive as
the killer of the 60s, but it-
was potent enough to
completely kill every liv-
ing thing on patch reefs
off Sarasota. During that
event, even the inverte-
brates died when the
masses of dead fish
robbed the water of oxy-


We really haven't seen
a true killer red tide since
then. Two years ago a
moderate red tide
wreaked havoc in
Charlotte Harbor and
killed a number of large
fish, like grouper, but
that was a paltry event
compared to the big ones
(though it did seem to
delay tarpon season).
But none of these
events had the potential
that the red tide of 2005
has. For, while red tides
have occurred in every
month, it is unheard of
to have such a massive
red tide in January. Most
red tides that form in the
winter tend to stay off-
shore and seldom impact
the fishery. This one may
be different:
If the cold front blows
this one into inshore
waters, we could have a
full blown red tide in
February. Then if we
have an unusually warm
spring, then the stage
will be set for a long-last-
ing killer red tide that
could stretch into the
summer.
Consider that such a
monster would occur
just as snook are trying
to move out of their win-
ter haunts onto the grass
flats. Nature coincides
this movement of snook
with the arrival of migra-
tory baitfish into the
estuary. During the win-
ter, snook basically
starve, and they need the
presence of migratory

If these winter-weary
snook are ambushed by a
red tide we could be see-
ing a very bad situation.
The potential is scary. If
this one develops into a
killer, then all the talk
about red tide will take
on a new urgency.

Tide) was formed by

moderate red tides
threatened Gulf front
businesses. But the
START folks have never
seen a true killer, nor
have many Floridians.
Between 1960 and
1975 we had two red
tides that qualified as
killers and none since.
There were also some
very bad red tides in the
1940s, so it seems that
true killers come along
about once in a decade.
Since there hasn't been
one of this magnitude
since 1975, it may mean
the west coast is long
overdue.
If the 2005 event does
develop into a killer, then
historians will need to
take a look at the hurri-
canes of 2004. Those
events may bear a part in
spawning a red tide of
Biblical proportions.
Right now that red tide
is the worst news on the
fishing front in many,
many years. And, without
scaring anybody to death,
it warrants close scrutiny.
.. A Florida that is still
reeling from four hurri-
canes does not need a
killer red tide on top of
that. Unfortunately, there
isn't a lot we can do
about it.

It's all about following the mullet


a|T e column this week
was going to be
about resources and
general information for
paddlers. At least that is
what I told WaterLine edi-
tor Capt. RodWalinchus.
But things change. A
recent fishing trip turned
out to be one of the best
days I have ever had fish-
ing with artificial lures
from a kayak. Obviously, I
have to brag I mean
write about it.
On this particular day I
had a couple of early
meetings regarding
upcoming fishing tourna-
ments. One of the tourna-
ments is going to be for
paddlers only (more about
this later). The meetings
left me with four hours or
so of fishing time avail-
able, so off I went to Pine
Island Sound. A fishing
friend and I had tried this
area just a few days earlier

with mixed results. We
caught quite a few fish,
but most were smaller
trout, with just a couple
small redfish.
I had not fished the
area for several months
and took the opportunity
to do some exploring
while attempting to locate
fish. We saw fish, but they
didn't seem interested in
eating what we were serv-
ing. But there was some-

thing about this particular
flat that seemed like it
could be good under the
right conditions. So I
went back to the flat on
my own to see if I could
find more and bigger fish.
There was a morning fog
but, just as I was leaving
the house, it cleared, and
the day turned out to be
spectacular. The sun
would be warming the
water, so I reckoned fish-
should be interested in
moving into the area and
enjoying the heat.
Just 45 minutes later, I
was in the water and off to
the promised land.
Candidly, the paddling dis-
tance to the particular area
in which I was interested
was a bit further than I
like. It was about a mile
from where I put in, which
is not too bad, but that
meant it was also a mile
coming back. Usually my

kayak fishing adventures
are for less distance than
that. Often I put the kayak
on my flats skiff, motor to
the general fishing area,
and then get off the flats
skiff and into the kayak
resulting in having to pad-
dle only short distances.
But, what the heck, I need-
ed the exercise, the day
had turned beautiful, and I
had the water to myself.
As is the case so many
times, the "yak" was get-
ting into areas that even a
flats skiff could not. The
one-mile paddle to the flat
was uneventful. Too
uneventful, as I saw no
fishon my way to my final,
destination. It was now)
early afternoon and there
was very little "fishy" activ-
ity that I could see. The
flat was very quiet, and
with zero fish caught after
about 30 minutes, I
thought about moving on
and doing some exploring
for a future trip.
Suddenly, several large
schools of mullet started
moving onto the flat and
within minutes it came
alive. I anchored 60 feet or


so from a large pothole
and started casting soft
plastic jerk baits. Third
cast and wham, a very big
fish hit and took off. I
could not stop it.
Unfortunately, the hook
pulled so I cannot honest-
ly say what it was,
although there is no doubt
in my mind that it was a
large redfish and probably
was the biggest fish of the
day. Easy to say, since I
lost the fish! The next six
casts into the same pot-
hole produced four reds.
All were five to seven
pounds and each acted
just the way I like them,
snotty and aggravated at
being caught. I did man-
age to lose four reds and
one trout, but the bite was
on, and for the next hour,
eleven redfish and two
three-pound-plus trout
were released.
So, this quick trip
resulted in a personal best
day for me fishing out of
the kayak and using only
artificial lures. All but one
of the redfish caught were
tournament-size fish and
the two large trout were a

bonus. On many occa-
sions I have caught more
fish but most were smaller
trout and reds. A good
friend and well-known
charter captain has always
told me that in the winter
it's "all about the mullet"
and today it certainly was.
The mullet milled around
for a while and then
moved on and with them
went the redfish. Another
lesson learned and anoth-
er great day of fishing.
A quick sidebar: Mark
your calendar for the
upcoming Sunbird Kayak
Festival being held in
Englewood on May 21-22.
One of the many events is
going to be the D.OA POA
kayak fishing tournament.
This will be an all release
photo event with prizes
and lots of fun and will be
held on May21. All par-
ticipants will receive a
D.OA tackle box with the
same lures and everyone
will have to use just the
lures provided. This will
make for a level playing
field and should be great
fun. More info about this
will be provided in future
columns.
Unfortunately, one of
the festival organizers,
Michael Mulone of the
Charlotte CountyVisitors
Bureau will be missing.
Michael has been a great
friend over the past couple
of years. He has recently
accepted a position with
ESPN and will be running
the Great Outdoor Games.
The county is losing a very
good man, but what a
wonderful opportunity for
Michael. We will miss
him.
Until next time, tight
lines and keep your pad-
dle in the water.

Things worth pondering


A apparently I've had
way too much free
:time lately
because I've been won-
dering about a few
things, including the fol-
lowing:
The last remaining
baitfish in your live bait
well is almost always
very difficult to catch.
Regardless of whether it's
the end of the day and


you're cleaning out the
leftover bait or whether
you've run out while
you're fishing, when you
get to the last baitfish
you usually end up chas-
ing that final little guy all
around the tank with
your dip net as it dips,
dodges and darts about
while avoiding capture.
Why is the last fish so
hard to catch? Is he hard
to catch because he's


last, or is he last because
he's hard to catch? In
other words, does a fish
which finds itself alone
in the bait tank become
more frantic than when
there were other baits
aboard? Or does the
most elusive fish in the
bait tank usually survive
to the end of the day,
making it the last one?
Truly a fishing impon-
derable on par with the
ancient chicken/egg
debate, and probably a
good candidate for
research funded by a
government grant.
Speaking of govern-
ments, does anyone else
think it's odd that while
the canals and water-
ways in the city of Punta
Gorda have been cleared
of debris for months, the


work in the saltwater
canals in Charlotte
County has still not
gotten underway six
months after the
storm?
. When it comes to
fishing, have you noticed
that sometimes you can't
seem to do anything
wrong while at other
times you can't do any-
thing right? Last week a
friend and I were fly fish-
ing for sea trout and
enjoying moderate suc-
cess, catching quite a
few trout along with
some ladyfish. After
landing a number of fish,
our carefully selected
flies were becoming
somewhat bedraggled
but neither of us wanted
to stop fishing long

Swimbaits: The simple soft plastic lure


Due to the fact-that
you never know
what you're going
to see while exploring the
backcountry, I have been
known to carry quite a
few pre-rigged outfits on
my boat at all times.
Lately, I have been
including what is consid-
ered a swimbait on one
rig. Basically, these are
artificial lures made from
a strong soft plastic mate-
rial in which the hook
and weight are pre-
assembled into the lure
by the manufacturer.
Because they can be
retrieved fairly simply
while still imparting great
action, they are very user-
friendly. In fact, over and
around the potholes on
the grassflats, the smaller
three-inch shad-tail baits
are perfect for children
and beginners alike.
Essentially, all that is
required is to cast them

Manis

out and simply reel them
in. Since they run with
the hook up, they are rel-
atively weedless.
Swimbaits are avail-
able in numerous styles
and lengths from two
inches up to six inches
and include more than a
dozen color combina-
tions; the two most com-
mon are the three- and
five-inch shad-tail and
jerkbait pattern. Some
models even contain rat-


tfie chambers. What is
more, these two baits can
be fished several different
ways. First, as previously
mentioned, they can be
reeled in with just a
steady retrieve which is
particularly effective with
the shad tail style bait.
Next, they can also be
worked similar to a jig.
This will work for both
the shad-tail and jerkbait
pattern. By bumping or
bouncing the lure up and
off the bottom it can be
made to imitate a wound-
ed bait running for the
cover of grass. As with
many successful jigs,
most gamefish will have a
tough time resisting the
bait as it falls. Also, both
style baits can be fished
like a jerkbait. By using
the rod tip to jerk the lure
through the water, the
bait can be kept up in the
water column imparting
a darting action. Lastly,


swimbaits are actually
trollable. For example, on
the outside of a bar, you
can put one out the back
of the boat and just take
it easy and just fish the
length of the drop off.
When working out on
the flats both styles work
well, although I still prefer
the smaller shad-tail bait.
Because the jerkbait con-
tains a heavier 3/8 ounce
jighead, it tends to get
caught up in the grass a
bit more often. And, I run
into somewhat the same
situation when fishing up
under the roots of a man-
grove island. This is also
due to the fact that this
particular style is not as
heavily weighted. As a
result, it will land softer
creating less disturbance
and again does not seem
to pull as much grass
coming out of the sand
that surrounds most
shorelines. As with all soft

is the most effective way
to attach lure and leader.
It allows your bait to

swimbaits appear to be
just as much if not a bit
more durable. Due to the
fact that the hook and
weight are enclosed with-
in the plastic does elimi-
nate the possibility that

View from the camera boat


Our biggest sale of the year
Unbeatable prices on every RV and boat in stock!

FIVE BIG DAYS: Feb. 9-13
HOURS: Weds.-Sat., 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.


Have been fortunate
enough to handle
some camera boat
duties for ESPN when the
BA.S.S. events come to
our great state. What I
have learned watching
these professional
anglers fish has been
very enlightening. The
funny thing is, when you
know the waters because
you spend two weekends
a month on them your-
self, sometimes the way
these anglers go about
fishing them can leave
you scratching your
head.
This year, I had the
good fortune to follow
Dean Rojas on Friday
and Terry Scroggins on
Saturday. As you may
recall, Rojas landed the
largest tournament
weight in B.A.S.S. history
at Lake Toho a few years
ago when he landed
close to 110 pounds of
bass over a four-day
tournament. Scroggins
has won B.A.S.S. events
in the state of Florida
and is from Palatka.
Getting the opportunity
to follow someone that is
a "local pro" was fantas-
tic, considering his
knowledge of the local
water.
Friday, Rojas encoun-
tered an overcast day
that brought some heavy
winds and rain as the day
went along. He started
out flipping mats in the
morning, and quite hon-
estly, never quit working
that pattern the entire
day. He would move


Freshwater Fishing


Greg
Bartz


from one area to the next
in search of five keeper
bass. Unfortunately, he
was only able to land one
fish that weighed close to
four pounds. He was in
second place after the
first day of competition
but after Friday, was
eliminated from the top
twelve and unable to
continue fishing the final
two days of the tourna-
ment.
Saturday, Scroggins
informed me before
take-off that he was
heading all the way down
from the City Ramp in
Lake Toho to the
Highway 60 Bridge on
the far south end of Lake
Kissimmee. That is close
to a 30-minute boat ride
with a stop to get
through the lock at the
south end of Lake Toho.
There were two things
that worried me about
this run. First, would I
lose him once we went
through the lock out of
Toho,-or secondly, would
I lose him on the south
end of Lake Kissimmee.
There are a lot of places
to "hide" down there.


Fortunately, I was able to.
locate him right away.
Scroggins spent the
entire day flipping as
well. He fished much
thicker vegetation than
Rojas. He would drive his
boat right into the mid-
dle of a lily pad "island"
wide open and then set
the boat down. He threw
the trolling motor in the
water and started flip-
ping. He would work the
thickest cover that these
areas had to offer. The
other thing that
Scroggins did different
from Rojas was to never
hit the same matted veg-
etation twice. He worked
them thoroughly but
once he left it, he never
went back.
A benefit the Saturday
anglers had was more
sunshine than those that
didn't make it to the
pare-down on Saturday.
This made the fish move
a little closer to the mats
to avoid the sunlight.
Gerald Swindle, running
a spinnerbait close to the
matted vegetation, boat-
ed a fish better than six
pounds. The mats offer a
great ambush point for
the fish to feed off.
These anglers are just
very impressive to watch.
Their actions are swift
and deliberate. You don't
see them backlash, get
hung up, or seem to have
any difficulty with equip-
ment. If they do have a
problem, the rod is
quickly replaced with
another one from the rod
locker.

Television coverage will include the
cameraman wading along with die
anglers, filming fish busting bait as
anglers chun up fish. Culling of legal
redfish will be allowed for this leg of the
Series only.
Event #3 of the Series, to be held
September 17, is The Red & Snook
Challenge Tournament. Each team will
vie for the best combined weight of one
redfish and one snook. All baits are
allowed.
Event #4 to be held on October 15 and
16, 2005 is the Flaismasters
Championship Weekend. This two-day
event will see the top 40 teams compete
on day one and die top five on day two to
catch the best combined weight of one
snook and one redfish. All baits will be
allowed.
Different species and different tech-
niques for different events make for an
exciting tournament series and one that
should provide for some unique teleti-
sion coverage. Imagine what viewers
will think of wading anglers having to
leave fish busting chummed bait so
they can look for another species to stay
competitive. The five camera crews will
be using underwatel-capable cameras
so they can capture all the visual excite-
ment above and below the surface
They will rotate among different boats
throughout die various legs of die
Series and cover as much action as pos-
sible.
The production crews will assemble
four one-hour television programs, one
for each event, and air them on the
Sunshine Network approximately one
month after each event. The show for-
mat will be about half on-the-water
action the fishing itself and about
one quarter informational and educa-
tional items, such as fishing how-to, die

camcorder, I shot some

be awhile before I got this
close to such beautiful
waterfowl again soon.
Sure, here in the Charlotte
Harbor area we see an
occasional spoonbill or
two, but I never have been
able to count fifty in one
area. I knew it was some-
thing special, so I wanted
to be sure to capture it to
share the footage with oth-

I saw plenty of alliga-
tors warming themselves
in the sun on the banks as
I drove through the
refuge. I saw some two-
and three-footers as well
as some twelve- and thir-
teen-footers. I got as close
as I dared and shot some
footage of them. Even
though they appeared to
be sleeping, I knew they
were watching me, so I
gave them their space.

Hello there: Gators are common sights in the refuge and are
rarely a threat, although this one seems a bit too friendly.


After all, they are wild ani-
mals so we need to
respect that. All too often
we hear about someone
being attacked by an alli-
gator here in Florida. Play
it safe and always be
aware of your surround-
ings. Do not feed alliga-
tors look at them from
afar. If you have ever seen
their teeth you will know
why.
If you're able to take a
drive through any of
Florida's state parks or a


wildlife refuges, it will be
well worth your time.
Being able to be so close
to all the different wildlife
is something you will
remember forever.
Sharing it all with children
can be even more reward-
ing. I am already planning
another trip back over to
the Merritt IslandWildlife
Refuge with my nephews
and my niece, so they too
can experience getting in
touch with the outdoors
on such an up-close level.

There's nothing quite like a st


As exciting and challenging
as sight fishing to a tailing
edfish, lurking snook or
laid-up tarpon is, I still experi-
ence moments of homesickness
for fish feeding at the surface. I
miss freshwater trout slurping
insects off the water's surface.
It's a sensory sort of thing,
both visual and auditory. There
is nothing quite like arriving at
a river, creek or stream and see-
ing the surface dimpled with
the rise-forms of feeding fish.
Watching a large trout rhythmi-
cally sucking floating mayflies
off the surface in a predictable
cadence is one of the joys of fly
fishing that is difficult to
describe and certainly incom-
parable to anything in saltwater
fishing. It's ballet-like; an
aquatic dance of rise, tilt,
descend, performed with grace
and elegance. It is the reason
why fly fishing has been
described as the quiet sport.
But not all is quiet. Those of
you that may have experienced
feeding fish on Montana's
Hegben Lake fully understand
why they are referred to as
'gulpers.' The sound they make
when sucking insects off the
surface is a distinctive gulp.
Anyone who has spent an
evening or two on one of
Wyoming's many high-desert
ponds and reservoirs has prob-
ably had their pulse quickened
by the toilet flushing sound of
trophy-sized brown trout suck-
ing in giant traveling sedges
(two-inch-long caddisflies that
emerge onto the surface and
then run across the water
towards shore). Having a five
pound (or larger) brown feeding
right next to you as you sit in a
float tube will get your attention
in a hurry.
Nearly everyone has experi-
enced the sights and sounds of
an evening caddis hatch. The
noisy and splashy rise-forms
make all but the most jaded fly
fisher anxious to cast a line. A
large rainbow trout slurping in a
floating foam grasshopper pat-
tern as it bounces along a riffle
on a big western river is another
visual and auditory highlight
and the sole cause of many
anglers booking August and
early September trips to the

Walinchus

west. The elusive salmonfly
hatch on many western rivers
beckons fly fishing pilgrims
from all around the country to
an almost religious experience.
There's a mystique associated
with being on the right piece of
water at the right time the
timing requires prayer to be ful-
filled. Once experienced in all
its glory, a salmonfly hatch is as
exciting as anything in fishing.
As saltwater anglers we have
our opportunities to fish at the
surface and, yes, they are excit-
ing. Working the mangroves
with a surface slider, searching
for snook, has all the makings
for heart-stopping action when
one boils at the fly. The same
goes for a redfish waking
towards a gurgler or Hell's Bay
Hopper chugging its way across
a shallow flat. And having that
redfish lift its head out of the
water behind the fly as it
attempts to eat it is both
thrilling and comical. Working
a popping bug over a potholed
shallow flat in the early morn-
ing light often entices the
largest of seatrout to suck in the
fly. They very often miss and
have to make several attempts
to hook themselves.
All of these situations are
exhilarating, to say the least,
but only play a minor role in a
normal day's fishing. They don't
occur with enough regularity to
spend the entire day sing
these techniques a few strikes
here and a few there is usually
the norm. As saltwater fly fish-
ers we know there are more
productive methods of fishing
so we usually default to them.
I recently received an invita-
tion to fish a private freshwater
pond (I had to swear an oath of
secrecy to not divulge its name
or location) with a few friends -
one of whom spent a few hours
fishing in the late afternoon the
day before. He caught over 30
bass, most of which were rela-
tively small, but a few were in
the five pound class all on
small popping bugs. Needless


to say, my interest was piqued.
We arrived at the pond after
traveling down a sandy road
that had us stopping every now
and then to open and close a
series of gates, all of which
made me nostalgic for the west.
After dumping our small alu-
minum boat into the water via a
makeshift launch, we rigged up
six-weight fly rods with relative-
ly short leaders and attached
smallish popping bugs to the
tippets. The bugs were rife with
rubber legs that quivered with
little manipulation. The plan
was to work the edges of the
shoreline casting as close to the
bank-side vegetation as possi-
ble. The fish seemed to prefer
subtle twitches of the bug to
loud pops.
A twitch-settle-twitch-settle
presentation soon lured a
smallish bass to suck in the
popper; grins all around. In rel-
atively short order, a few more
bass were brought to the boat
and others were missed as they
boiled at the fly. The action
wasn't by any means hot and
heavy, but it was consistent and
somewhat sated my appetite for
surface action. We managed to
land about 15 bass and a few
panfish in the few hours we
spent working the pond and
decided to call it quits in the
early afternoon. We knew full
well we were leaving with the
best part ofthe fishing day still
ahead, but commitments beck-
oned.
We live in an area that has
hundreds of similar ponds,
many of which see little fishing
pressure and all hold fish of
some sort. There are also miles
and miles of freshwater canals
that see little pressure. The sur-
face action junkie can get his fill
of fish busting topwater flies
with just a little effort. A polite
inquiry here or there may allow
access to water rarely fished.
But there is enough public
water available with enough
catchable fish to meet anyone's
needs.
For example, I spent a few
enjoyable hours walking around
a small pond in the Webb-
Babcock Management Area in
Punta Gorda catching small
bass and panfish. Of course a
kayak, canoe or small jon boat


opens up the accessibility to
more water. Many of our area's
waters can be accessed with a
small boat, especially the fresh-
water sections of our rivers.
A handful of flies poppers,
foam spiders, beetles, divers,
sliders, hair frogs and such, in
range of sizes are all that is
necessary to catch bass,
bluegill, stumpknockers and an
assortment of other panfish.
While this may not be serious
bass fishing, it will put a defi-
nite smile on the face of any fly
fisher especially one that
enjoys a strike at the surface.
Even better the action is con-
sistent, fun and easily accom-
plished.

enough to update our
offerings, especially
since the fish were still
cooperating. As the fish-
ing continued, the flies
proceeded to deteriorate
to the point where my
partner's fly consisted of
a single haggard feather
and my own fly boasted
only a head and a strand
or two of tinsel. No mat-
ter, seemingly anything
that hit the water would
be eaten by a hungry
trout: The flies looked
so bad that we were jok-
ing back and forth about
which of us was using
the ugliest fly, but the
fish continued to hit
until the approaching
darkness prompted us to
depart.


Just a day or two later
I was guiding a pair of
anglers and, partially
because of the good
action I'd had on the
previous trip, I decided
that we would spend the
morning trout fishing.
On this second trip we
were armed with some
really nice live bait and I
was confident that we'd
quickly catch our limit.
After all, trout aren't the
toughest fish in the
world to catch anyway,
and as good as they'd
been biting it seemed a
sure bet that we'd score
easily. As most of the
readers have already
guessed, we actually did
quite poorly, so poorly
that I'm sheepish about
admitting that more
than three hours of very
hard work netted us only
a single trout. Why? I
wish I knew.


Have you ever noticed
how often boats anchor
and fish around channel
* markers in the open har-
bor? I've always wanted
to sneak out at night and
place a new channel
marker in some fish-for-
saken and barren part of
the harbor just to see
how long it would take
for someone to anchor
there and fish.
This will be the first
tarpon season that
breakaway fishing tackle
is outlawed in Boca
Grande Pass, a very
unusual site-specific
gear rule in Florida. It
will be interesting to see
how the tarpon fisher-
men rig for tarpon with-
out the use of sinkers or
jig heads which fall off
when a fish strikes, and
to see how such a rule
can be enforced. The
reason that breakaway


rigs were developed for
both live bait and jig
fishing for tarpon in
Boca Grande Pass is that
when freshly hooked tar-
pon execute their
famous wildly gyrating
leaps, their snappy head
shakes cause the sinkers
or weighted lures to
whip back and forth,
often dislodging the
hook. The use of break-
away weights increases
the percentage of landed
fish.
There is another ben-
efit to breakaway
weights safety. This
season, when a frantic
tarpon leaps and man-
ages to dislodge a hook
or lure, there will be sev-
eral ounces of lead flying
through the air. I won-
der how many people
will be whacked by air-
borne sinkers or jigs in
the crowded waters of


Boca Grande Pass this
year.
While we're on the
topic of Boca Grande
Pass, I wonder if I'll be
ticketed by the marine
patrol this April if I troll
for Spanish mackerel on
the north bar at Boca
Grande. The new three
rods per boat rule for
Boca Grande Pass is
effective in April, May
and June. This rule was
drafted to help reduce
the congestion during
tarpon season in the
Pass, but the rule does
not specify whether the
anglers must be actually
fishing for tarpon. The
map which defines the
waters in which the rule
applies shows a substan-
tial portion of the north
sand bar towards the
beach included, as is the
swash channel between
the old fishing pier and


the Pass. This means
that my usual four-line
trolling spread of mack-
erel rigs would be illegal
'during a good portion of
the spring mackerel run
in this very productive
area. Seems like a case
of good intentions gone
bad.

*RED
From page 22
happened to be sharing a
few beers with marine sci-
entists from Rutgers
University who were using
a much larger version for
an ambitious project to
map the Mid Atlantic
Bight. His professional
opinion (he's also an engi-
neer) was that a smaller
version would be perfect
for catching red tide in
action. Two were built for
Mote. *
At the heart of the
AUV's payload is a spec-
trometer-an instrument
that measures the proper-
ties of light. It looks for
high chlorophyll levels,
which scientists associate
with K brevis blooms.
In a team effort with
National Oceanic and
Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA),
Mote scientists identify
likely places in the Gulf
based on NOAA satellite
photos. The AUV's swim
mission is programmed,


but can be changed
remotely, just like NASAs
Mars Rover. The AUV
beams its data to a NOAA
satellite, which feeds the
report back to Mote.
"We think we might
actually catch the start of
a bloom in the next few
years," says Dr. Barbara
Kirkpatrick
In the meantime,
researchers at University
of North Carolina at
Wilmington's Center for
Marine Science were
chopping up bits of K bre-
vis and trying to syntheti-
cally recreate the pieces
when they saw discovered
something very interest-
ing: K brevis makes its
own antitoxin.
It's not known why K.
brevis makes the 10 to 12
toxins it manufactures in
the first place. We do
know that these neurotox-
ins (poisons that affect
nerve cells) are extremely
powerful-very small
doses are enough to para-
lyze gill function in fish,
killing them.
These same brevetox-


ins, as they're called, are
secreted naturally by K
brevis. They're also
released in large quanti-
ties into the surf when the
delicate K brevis organ-
ism breaks up in the wave
action of the surf.
Brevetoxins bind them-
selves very well to bub-
bles, also prevalent in surf
- up to 50 times the
amount of brevetoxin fits
onto a bubble versus an
identical patch of water.
Wind blows the bubbles
into a mist.
It's the "aerosolized"
brevetoxin that is inhaled
and blown in our eyes
that wreaks havoc with
some of us-asthmatics,
people with emphysema
or bronchitis, and other
"sensitive subpopula-
tions" that Dr. Kirkpatrick
and her team are study-
ing.
An even greater mys-
tery is why K brevis
makes its own antitoxin.
Once they isolated it, the
UNC Wilmington team
quickly synthesized the
compound (now patented


and called Brevenal) and
tested it on sheep
exposed to brevetoxins.
Sheep have very sensitive
air passages that make
them perfect proxies for
respiratory-compromised
humans.
The results were
astounding. Brevenal was
1,000 times more effective
in blocking the effects of
brevetoxins on the test
sheep than any available
antihistamine. Not only
does Brevenal show
promise as a blocker for
the symptoms of red tide,
but Dr. Lora Fleming, a
professor of epidemiology
and public health at
University of Miami, and
who co-heads the study
with Dr. Kirkpatrick,
thinks Brevenal has great
potential for treating seri-
ous diseases like cystic
fibrosis.
'And this never would
have happened without
our research on red tide,"
says Dr. Fleming.
As for what we fisher-
men (and women) can do
today about red tide, Dr.


Kirkpatrick shared some
advice:
* Go ahead and fish dur-
ing a red tide. If the fish
fights normally, it should
be fine to eat-just make
sure to fillet the fish.
Brevetoxins accumulate
in the guts, especially the
liver.
* Don't eat local mollusks
during a red tide that
is, oysters, scallops, clams,
etc or gastropods that
feed on them, like whelks.
You can eat crabs, shrimp,
and lobsters during a red
tide, however these
shellfish aren't affected by
brevetoxins.
* Don't think you'll kill the
brevetoxins in local shell-
fish by cooking them.
Unlike bacteria, brevetox-
ins are extremely heat-
resistant.
* Commercially bought
shellfish (from supermar-
kets and restaurants) are
fine to eat during red tide.
"The USDA has an awe-


some monitoring process
for seafood," says Dr.
Kirkpatrick. This includes
imported shellfish, the
processing for which is
often stricter than it is for
fish they process for their
own consumption.
Have you ever suffered
brevetoxin poisoning? The
effects are mild on peo-
ple, from gastrointestinal
distress to reverse sensa-.
tions of hot and cold (ice
feels hot, hot coffee feels
cold). "We actually think
most cases of brevetoxin
poisoning are underre-
ported," says Dr.
Kirkpatrick.
If you do come down
with a case of brevetoxin
poisoning, you should
seek medical advice, as
the reaction can be
severe. And avoid eatifig
any more fish guts.
Ifyou have any
stories about wildlife
or plants where you
live or play, please share
them with me at
outdoordiary@comcast.net.
